I agree that hand-carved Makefiles are difficult to work with.

The failing Perl-related test runs successfully if Perl is added to the
environment. However, there is another failure later on:

make[1]: Leaving directory '/tmp/guix-build-di-4.42.drv-0/di-4.42/C'

I skimmed 'mkconfig/', but I don't understand it well enough
to debug it.

If the source code is still maintained, I bet the authors will be
willing to help. They express interest in testing and portability on the
web page.

But if everyone else prefers to skip the tests, I won't object :)
