<rekado_>but when I build the GWL with that patched Guix as its input it doesn’t even reach the point that I was experimenting with — much earlier, the first moment I’m building a profile, it downloads lots of tarballs for binutils, gcc, etc.
<rekado_>so … yeah, I guess it’s building a different derivation for some reason.
<rekado_>I haven’t been able to let it tell me more, though
<rekado_>that’s going to be my next step: use gexp->derivation and friends instead of the higher-level lower-object to have it print the derivation name first.
<rekado_>the rest of that file is just to ensure that I’m not dealing with that incompatibility in bytecode between version 3.0.2 (which is used by most guile-* packages) and 3.0.5 (which is used by ‘guix’)
