Well, I don't have guix installed at the moment.  I've tried to install
guix as the main OS several times and I keep failing.  I suppose I
shouldn't blame myself too much.  I mean, I did try to get it to work.

I've also tried installing guix on my Parabola machine.  Also I never
seem to be able to get it to work well either.  Anyway,  I've installed
guile now.  I just downloaded chickadee 2.0 tarball.  I got this error:

configure: error: required guile module not found: (gl)

I looked, and unfortunately parabola doesn't seem to have guile-gl
packaged.  :(  I could probably go do an internet search and figure out
how to install a guile module, but it's not on the highest of my list of
priorities now.  I'll get to it someday soon.

I'm sorry if this email has a defeatist attitude.  :(
