Exactly. It already attempts to do that in:

    `(#:use-setuptools? #f
      (modify-phases %standard-phases
        (add-after 'unpack 'patch-/usr
          (lambda* (#:key outputs #:allow-other-keys)
            (substitute* "setup.py"
              (("/usr") (assoc-ref outputs "out")))

$ grep -R /usr
lib/python3.5/site-packages/openmolar/dbtools/records_in_use.py:#! /usr/bin/env 
lib/python3.5/site-packages/openmolar/settings/localsettings.py:    SHARE_DIR = 
os.path.join("/usr", "share", "openmolar")
Coincidencia en el fichero binario 

openmolar has three dependencies:

But only python-pyqt+sqcintilla files have /usr on them (besides openmolar's). 
Perhaps the
problem is that package definition. But I cannot figure how to do it yet.

I find that it is needed to download the source. But I do not have a
connection to the web. I have to travel 1 hour every time I need to
connect. Is there any way i can use Emacs to have all necesary files for
hacking on Guix?
