So I've downloaded the latest guix tarball from, built it and 
installed it according
to the instructions in INSTALL (using the default parameters).

Then I install a few packages using 'guix package -i <pkgname>' and start 
trying them out by setting
my path: export PATH="$HOME/.guix-profile/bin:$PATH"  - To my delight, using 
guix I can install lots of
packages and run them.  

After a while I run "guix package -i guix" which installs just fine.   But 
sadly now guix is broken.  Wheneve
I run any command I get:

 guix package: error: failed to connect to `/var/nix/daemon-socket/socket': No 
such file or directory

Shouldn't we have a --localstatedir option or an environment variable so that 
guix knows where to find its state
