I get no results when I do `./pre-inst-env guix package -A syncthing`
from the repo where I removed qsyncthingtray.

`guix package -A syncthing` shows a result for qsyncthingtray, because
that is a "plain" Guix, from `guix pull`, set up as described in Binary

$ ls -l $(which guix)
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root staff 54 Aug 14  2015 /usr/local/bin/guix -> 
$ ls -l ~/.config/guix/latest 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 leo leo 55 Jun 25 19:19 /home/leo/.config/guix/latest -> 

But, that's not the Guix that I expect to be queried for packages. Maybe
there is some unexpected interaction between the various copies of Guix?

I'll try this on GuixSD today or tomrrow.
