Sorry, I that really wasn't my intention. I saw the version was old and my
first thought was to update it to a later version.

It turns out that hydra, the automated build server for guix, has a copy of
xz that you can download if you authorize hydra to provide substitutions.
With a copy of hydra.gnu.org.pub, the command is `sudo guix archive
--authorize hydra.gnu.org.pub`. After that, instead of building everything
locally, your computer will first check to see if hydra has already built a
package and you can just download it.

Feel free to ask anything and we'll try to help out :)
