Timezone problems

Hello all,

I'm running into issues whereby the 'date' command that is part of the
coreutils package (installed through guix) returns non-timezone
corrected values (i.e. it returns UTC even for local time).

I suspect this was to do with the locale complications of the earlier
gcc version that was part of guix, and that locale issue seems to be
resolved now: Guile 2.0.9 compiled with the new gcc does not complain
about locale settings anymore.

Would guix normally have recompiled coreutils following the gcc upgrade
too? If so then the problem must be something else — but the date
program invoked through /bin/date returns the correct local time (installed
through aptitude), so it seems guix specific.

If not — is there a way to force re-installation from scratch for just

Best wishes,
