Currently I'm using Guix within Debian. I plan to try out the full Guix
system soon. In general it works very well and I prefer it over
packaging systems. Also the community is very supportive.

However, at the moment we are suffering the results of glibc changing
the locale format from 2.21 to 2.22. I guess nobody ever thought you
would install multiple glibcs on one system and thus didn't question
making incompatible changes to the locales. It's not pretty for people
who are using Guix within another OS (like me). You have to build a few
symlinks by hand to get things mostly working. But their build farm is
currently building their internal fix and they are trying to get a fix
into glibc upstream.

Stretch does package recutils-1.7, with readrec. You have to enable
readrec manually with `enable -f`.

The tar should unpack into your current working directory, so I guess
that you were in /etc?

Thanks a lot, I will take a look at this.
