I've run into a build issue with recent master on x86_64 and Loongson 3A
(both hosted on Debian wheezy).  Python 3 fails in the tests with
"OSError: out of pty devices" and then the guix-daemon sometimes gets
stuck in a sleeping state and hangs indefinitely.

My Loongson 2F system, based on 1eefbb2693f0f29f8f095af9f067240b85e735aa
with some cherry-picks and local patches, did not run into this problem.
My guess is that a commit since 1eefbb2 broke things.  Alternatively,
maybe the difference is that my Loongson 2F is not based on Debian, but
rather on my home-built custom system based on CLFS.

For completeness, here are the patches I added to 1eefbb2, so the
problem isn't in any of these:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
727c3ed * [mhw] gnu: pulseaudio: Increase timeouts for tests.
b669aae * PRELIMINARY Rewrite union.scm.
a633e16 * TEMPORARY HACK: Disable binary-substitute script.
9c717c8 * gnu: gnutls: Configure location of system-wide trust store.
a44bec8 * PRELIMINARY Upgrade sqlite to 3.8.4, and apply large page size fix.
b749814 * TEMPORARY HACK: Disable tests for gdb.
4f662d7 * daemon: Add tests for substitutes and --no-substitutes.
df4775e * daemon: Clear $NIX_SUBSTITUTERS when passed '--no-substitutes'.
895905a * daemon: Change some options via 'settings.set'.
3e67ad4 * Add (guix svn-download).
59e7456 * gnu: gnu-pw-mgr: Fix download location.
4807dba * gnu: tcl: Install man pages in share/man.
5f156d1 * gnu: tor: Upgrade to
1eefbb2 * [origin/core-updates] Merge branch 'master' into core-updates
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Beyond that, here are some things that I'd ideally like to get into 0.6:

* New union.scm.

* Fix more packages to install man pages in share/man: expect, lua, zip,
  pth, bazaar, ocaml, indent, netpbm.

* Look into security updates for mutt, file, and libssh:
  mutt: Debian Security Advisory DSA-2874-1
  libssh: Debian Security Advisory DSA-2879-1
