Hi Ludo,

No, I don't think so.  Everything is working again after your bug fix.

I have just needed to introduce a couple of concepts in order to use
the ./pre-inst-env commands in the git checkout.  Firstly, I use a
development environment created by:

$ guix environment --ad-hoc guile gnutls guile-gcrypt guile-json nss-

This adds the guile-gcrypt dependency and prevents the 'no code for
module (gcrypt hash)' error.

Then, for working on a new package ('my-new-package'), I create a new

$ ./pre-inst-env guix environment --pure my-new-package --ad-hoc guile-

Lastly, to build the package I need to define GUILE_LOAD_PATH:

$ GUILE_LOAD_PATH=$GUIX_ENVIRONMENT/share/guile/site/2.2 ./pre-inst-env 
guix build -K my-new-package

An alternative would perhaps be to install guile-gcrypt in the user
profile (or a separate profile as suggested by Pjotr).  Then use

Best regards,
