I am still in bootstrap mode on an aging CenOS6 compute cluster, so I
am not in package writing mode. I need to be able to install Nix/Guix
without root. I work in short stretches on the problem (I wish it
was easier! I tried bootstrapping Guix, but failed).

At this point I got Nix 1.6.1 working with this script,
which is derived from the Nix wiki.

Now, I need to patch Nix to work with PAM/LDAP (that fix is in 1.7,
but that does source tree does not compile with my script, I tried
that yesterday), next I need to upgrade the Guix package in Nix (it is
at 0.3) and then I can continue playing with packages.

The Ruby package needs work too because we need a sane way to handle
gems. I need to understand the way Nix does it and what Guix does with
Python. The way it is done now in Nix looks fairly complex. I don't
think we want automated gem processing.
