The issue is that the ‘65 packages’ lines comes from the build side log
(which doesn’t know the distinction between propagated inputs and the
rest), while the ‘51 packages’ line comes from ‘guix package’.

Perhaps the log should say ‘65 items’, to make it clear it’s not
counting the same thing.

Alternately, we could also remove that line altogether.
