Fuck it, move grub to extra. When your bootloader depends on a font
rendering package and FUSE, you have bigger problems than repository

I'd also suggest we move sqlite to an optdep of nfs-utils, as well. It
appears that only nfsdcltrack links to sqlite, and this isn't something
that everyone needs to run. Even the manpage points out that the daemon
is essentially for working around edge cases. Epic fail, RedHat.
