Ah, okay.

I guess I gotta give up reporting bug building on RaspberryPi (raspbian)
too, as it's armhf arch instead of i686|x86_64.

On raspbian it got error in bootstraping, complains about automake
version (raspbian have only 1.11.6, but guix require 1.12).

I'm expecting to see a GNU/Hurd port, as it has the real GNU soul. :-)

A dumb question,
Can I use both APT and Guix on the same system?
As what you mentioned, GNU/Hurd is much like a GNU/Debian/Hurd with apt
by default.
If I can use APT for the base system and use Guix for installing other
applications (ex, firefox, mutt, other userland applications), porting
the whole Hurd into Nixpkgs will not be a must-have-now issue.

I think it might be a cool thing which letting sysadmin and users decide
what applications (and what version) they want.
Would mixing apt and guix cause any problem?

Best wishes,
