Ahh, yeah, makes sense. I noticed that store path is different than
the one for the glade package in my profile, so I thought Guix might
have extended the glade package somehow... guess not.

Is the former the usual method for providing libraries like this? If
I'm interpreting this correctly, meson somehow found the path to the
glade package during the build, and I'd have to figure out how and
override that to ensure ends up in the build tree for
the libhandy package?

Assuming that's the case, am I correct in thinking that Glade (the UI
editor) will then be able to find because it'll be in
my profile?

You're right; I started attempting this before 0.0.10 came out, but
whenever I submit the package I'll pull in the latest version.

Ah, I forgot that the parameter to "commit" could also be a tag. I'll
adjust that.

Yup! I saw someone having trouble installing libhandy in one of their
chatrooms, and I was thinking it might be interesting to try and get
some of their software running with Guix. (Who knows, maybe we could
run Guix System on the Librem 5 once it's out!)
