I see. Those are same errors I get when I use the GSRC version currently offered.
I agree, it is not usable as is. I was under the impression you were now attempting
using the forthcoming 2.04 version using this string of commands.:. which is what
works for me:

  git clone https://git.lysator.liu.se/lsh/lsh.git
  cd lsh
  git checkout lsh-2.0.4 # This is the stable branch
   make bootstrap

GRSC version of lsh will be updated soon, I hope, or you can just use the Debian
package for now. Or move on with life.
After trying GSRC I also try GUIX. It's got good features, but it is not there yet.
But I am hopeful heaven on earth will come any day now.

Hello Carl,

Thank you for helping. I use in the PATH, only /bin and /usr/bin and
~/gnu/bin. Here is the output of recent attempt:

GSRC is great software that directly loads sources and offers GNU
software packages, that are not otherwise packaged in popular
distributions. It setup offers more trusted sources, and does not
interfere with the system. When I started using GSRC, I have later
discovered GuixSD.

GSRC can still be used for easily testing software packages that are not
otherwise available in other distributions.

If it works on your side, it is good, I don't know why it does not on my
