The basic issue is: 
I cannot add a builder group since on these machines I don't have the
"groupadd" command ... limitations of the image/testbed

So when starting the daemon with:

address@hidden ~]$ sudo guix-daemon
warning: daemon is running as root, so using `--build-users-group' is
highly recommended
accepted connection from pid 13641, uid 1376
245 operations

The client prints:

guix package -i make
guix package: error: build failed: unable to fork: Operation not
