Thanks! For me also, it builds well, but I cannot install it:
$ guix-package -i netpbm
error: build failed: build of `/nix/store/h2s02132641hvaqr03q96i97dydlqm4i-user-environment.drv' failed.
Maybe because of the extraneous files?

Well, it was simply obtained from the download link of the "Advanced" field at
The link is
which would download a tarball with the name "advanced?view=tar", and with the hash changing every time (I did not understand why). So I downloaded it manually and renamed it. It is really an official release with a regular version number, not simply an svn/git checkout. The version number is recorded in a file in the tarball (which was part of the download, I did not add anything).

Before that, https would be nice!

Yes, it was quite amazing; once more, we should be grateful to the GNU build system...
