The failures look like this:

This is libressl-portable bug #290:

There is a problem with using getentropy() or getrandom() from
glibc-2.25 with Linux < 3.17, when these syscalls where introduced.
Basically, glibc will return ENOSYS, which applications are not handling

I expect the build to succeed on armhf, where I believe the builders
have kernels > 3.17.

In the case of libressl, the developers have closed as WONTFIX, although
perhaps they could be persuaded to make libressl handle ENOSYS somehow.

Cpython hit the same problem, and they worked around it. This means that
the Python interpreters Hydra builds for x86_64 and i686 not use the new
getentropy() / getrandom() syscalls, even though many Guix users and
probably all GuixSD users have more recent kernels:

Can we disable the build on Hydra without marking the package as
