     What command produces that error?

It was the configure command, but actually anything (except shell builtins 
provoked it).

     No, it’s literally LIBRARY_PATH.
     Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH may have caused non-Guix-provided programs to
     link against Guix’s libc, possibly leading to the error above.

Oh you were right.  Unsetting it fixes the problem.

What is LIBRARY_PATH ? I have never heard of that one.
