I'm currently occupying the time where I don't study various things and
debug gnunet-service with packaging torbrowser.

So Gentoo (inofficially, 'torbrowser-overlay'[1]) uses the pre-build
archives found on in combination with a git checkout
and the torbrowser + firefox patches done by Gentoo devs[1.1].

NixOS in Nixpkgs[2] makes use of patchelf to just fix up the prebuild
variant found on

I suspect that the way Nix 'fixes' this is a no-go for us.

My idea is now to just reconstruct what torproject does, from the git
checkout of torbrowser[3] and eventually later fix Guix specific issues
and fine tuning (freedom issues etc etc). 

Cloning takes a rather long time, this is where Andy's shallow-clone
would be useful, which is where I ran into issue and delayed re-working
this for now. If someone is interested I can post the patch which
applied on master recently.

1: An overlay can be compared to what we have as 'GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH',
   distributed in official and inofficial forms.
1.1: The raw data of the ebuild can be seen here, excluding eclasses:
