The "make check" failure does not mean that GRUB loading files off of a 
UFS2 filesystem won't work. The failure means that the UFS2 stage1.5 
file is too large to be put at the beginning of a UFS2 filesystem (in 
the hidden area), so if you tried to _install_ GRUB onto a system using 
UFS2 as the filesystem on the partition you choose to install onto, you 
risk damaging the filesystem.
