When I try to install the package by invoking `guix package -f
my-module.scm`. Here's the output from the build log:
    make[2]: Nothing to be done for 'install-exec-am'.
cannot create directory
Permission denied

    root@guix /# guix package -l
    Generation 1 Mar 22 2020 19:55:59
     + guile 2.2.7 out

As you can see, the build process is using a different installation store
directory ... which happens to be the one corresponding to the
/var/guix/profiles/system profile.

Do you mean as provided by the `--prefix` configure script option? Or
something more specific?
