Another thing I find a little strange. When I install a package or an
environment it completes fine. When I add then --no-substitutes flag
and it always builds stuff like openssl and libgcrypt, pango and such
from source.

I.e., it creates a build system (I suppose). If the install is
complete it should not have to do that. 

Even if I do 

  guix environment -C guix

(which should include a build system, right?) and after completion
run the same with --no-substitutes it starts to build right away.

Any thoughts on that?
