Would be nice to see if this can be built from source.

It has to be installed in ~/.guix-profile because that’s where Guix’s
Fontconfig looks for font (I assume you’re talking about a
Guix-installed Emacs.)

Maybe you need to run ‘fc-cache -vfr’ (from Fontconfig) to update the
font cache?

The best would be to build them from source, if possible.  Otherwise
there can be several origins listed in ‘native-inputs’.
