It has come to my attention that guix packages (at least those with gnu build 
default their statedirs to directories under /nix/store/.  Recall that the 
statedirs (ie: 
sharedstatedir localstatedir and runstatedir) are for installing data files 
*which the programs
modify while they run* [1].   Obviously a program cannot modify anything under 
I think we need to update the default configure flags.
