Does updating grub require mounting /boot first?

/boot must be mounted, but the ebuild will mount it for you if it is not.
Note however that the ebuild will *not* update the stages installed in
the MBR and/or boot sector: after you're done emerging you have to do
that either manually or by re-running grub-install.
Depending on what changed between the two releases, failure to update
the stages might result in an unbootable system.
