It's building now, apparently everything from source, so probably a long way to go...

Let's see if it will put a unable libreoffice instance in the store...

Please let us know how it goes.  If it builds and is usable, we should
merge it.

Well it did build indeed! And now I have a working LibreOffice in the store. Tested briefly, works without a hitch so far.

Unrelated, but maybe you could advise me as I'm just starting to study Guix deeply:

Have I somehow "poluted" the environment via the pull of the wip-libreoffice tar? I'm asking this as I see a different behavior now with `guix package -d' and `-i' for other packages now than before, and a lot of building from source. Also `# guix gc' will delete as garbage a derivation of tar, bzip2, and module-import, and `# guix pull' spends a long time building these from source. And thus in a circle.

What can I do about this?
