Taylan was talking about 'reconfiguring' and thus, I think, about
GuixSD.  GuixSD's guix-daemon is updated on reconfigure, not from the
root account.

(For the foreign distro installation, an extra step is needed indeed:
one needs to get /etc/systemd/system/guix-daemon.service to point to the
user's Guix current profile so to remove the need for the Guix of root.)
