I will take a look later what can be applied other than the
default configure flags.

I'm all for hardening, but it seems that the first basic ideas
for Guix are stuck in the idea state.
It would be great to see some movement on this during this

experience with SELinux (and only basic experience with
GrSecurity without a modular kernel like GuixSD uses).
