I too do not have Windows. Infact I don't even have efi hardware. The reason
I need it are for my VM builds which do use efi. (I wanted to learn how efi 
The VMs boot up with grub.
I have a script which creates a new blank VM disk with the lfs tools chain. One 
of the 
commands in this script is grub-install. grub-install requires efibootmgr being 
when constructing a x86_64-efi target.
As a side note, when I build grub, I build it twice for the two targets that I 
use, i386-pc and x86_64-efi.
