Wow, that's really slow :(

I don't know of any easy way to speed it up. Maybe you could build Guix
on a faster computer and use `guix copy` to move it to this slower

My understanding is that Guile 2.2 traded slower compilation for faster
execution of compiled programs. Hopefully the performance of the
compiler will be improved in later updates to Guile.

I'm curious, what machine are you using where it takes 3 hours? My
slowest machine takes 100 minutes, which is also too slow, but it's much
better than 3 hours.
