The patch looks good to me!

As for /var/lib/bsdgames, then it’s up to the admin to set the right
permissions on it.  We can ensure that it exists and has the right
permissions on GuixSD, but on foreign distros, there’s nothing we can

We could also modify bsd-games such that it falls back to
~/.local/bsdgames when /var/lib/bsdgames isn’t accessible (and it would
be worth submitting upstream).  ISTR this was discussed for one of the
games present in Guix.
