To isolate the problem, how about:

   1. Defining a Guix package for libgc 8.0.4;

   2. Running “guix build guile --with-input=libgc@7=libgc@8” (or
      defining a package along these lines).

I did this and the build was fine as I expected. Guile builds fine
against libgc-8. But building Guix with a guile-libgc8 goes wrong.

I got now this little patch and try to build guix with:
./pre-inst-env guix build guix -K
