Although LILO is indeed unaware of GPT tables (as of 23.1, the latest as of this writing), it appears that it might work on a system with GPT tables anyway. It doesn't really have to be aware. Here are some references sort of confirming this:

Initially, I thought that it'd fail while being installed, but maybe not - or not always.
