05_debian_theme file is missing

I have grub 2.0 and I want to change the boot menu wallpaper/picture/splashscreen. All guides and walkthroughs refer to the file "/etc/grub.d/05_debian_theme" and editing the line "WALLPAPER". I'm on Arch X64 and I can't seem to find that file. It doesn't exist.

Should I create it, rely on a template? Shouldn't it be there for me?

My /etc/grub.d has eight files. One of them is 05_debian_theme. The only "alteration" I have ever done is use GDM Setup to change themes. Use GDM Setup to select a different theme and see if it generates a 05_debian_theme file. I have no idea if it would work, but it would not hurt anything.
