Yes: why is Zsh now trying to run autoconf?  Apparently it does that
after having successfully run ./configure, right?

Normally Autoconf-based projects built from tarball do *not* need
Autoconf.  Now, if Zsh’s build system requires it (which would be
bogus), just add ‘autoconf’ (and perhaps ‘automake’) to ‘inputs’.

That is weird (though Emacs has nothing to do with that, I suppose.)
What does ‘ls -l ~/.guix-profile’ show?
