Hi Ricardo,

Thanks for your reply!

You did not run “./configure --localstatedir=/var”.

I did, in an earlier cycle. More precisely, I did

   ./configure --prefix=/opt/guix --localstatedir=/var

in order to prevent Guix from overwriting some of Ubuntu's system files.

In order to start from a clean slate, I now did

  guix environment guix
  make distclean
  ./configure --prefix=/opt/guix --localstatedir=/var
  make check
  sudo make install

This fails even earlier, complaining about a missing makeinfo:

 make[2]: Entering directory '/home/hinsen/Development/guix'
   MAKEINFO doc/guix.info
/home/hinsen/Development/guix/build-aux/missing: line 81: makeinfo: command not found

Checking config.log, I see that indeed makeinfo has not been found:

MAKEINFO='${SHELL} /home/hinsen/Development/guix/build-aux/missing makeinfo'

However, it is available in my environment:

 ~/Development/guix [dev]$ which makeinfo

There are a few other executables marked as missing:

I started from scratch again, but added the paths for these executables manually to the generated Makefile, right after configure. That got me back to the error message that I got before:

 /bin/bash: line 5: gawk: command not found
 sed: couldn't write 47 items to stdout: Broken pipe
 /bin/bash: line 5: echo: write error: Broken pipe

However, config.log says:

 configure:2900: checking for gawk
configure:2916: found /gnu/store/2kgp5d4wh40b49gp4qwqh2b4il29gq6g-profile/bin/gawk
 configure:2927: result: gawk

and Makefile contains

 AWK = gawk

Next, I replaced this line by

 AWK = /gnu/store/2kgp5d4wh40b49gp4qwqh2b4il29gq6g-profile/bin/gawk

and re-ran "make install". Success!

Conclusion: something is going wrong in configure.
