Normally, ‘guix package --install’ and ‘guix package --search-paths’
would suggest adding ~/.guix-profile/lib/perl/... to $PERL5LIB, which
should solve the problem, no?

Indeed, thanks for the pointers and explanations.

Currently, all the Perl packages provided in Guix use MakeMaker
apparently, so I guess we’ll implement the Module::Build method as soon
as we stumble upon a package that needs it.  :-)
