I wanted to use an environment file that contains a package definition, and use it with inferiors. Here is the full guix.scm:


The idea was that you would use the provided channels with

    USE_GUIX_INFERIOR=t guix environment -l guix.scm

Unfortunatly the environment file isn't self contained (VERSION and the
package source are missing), so I couldn't reproduce your issue.

This example was taken from the source code here:
