I’m pursuing this option. I took the definition of texlive-latex-base from 
the master branch (which doesn’t depend on LaTeX3) and added it to my 
branch as texlive-latex-no-l3 (with a few minor changes to get it to build 
with texlive 2021), and used it as a dependency to build texlive-latex-

This worked! Now texlive-latex-l3kernel builds correctly, and the build of 
texlive-latex-base is attempted (instead of just causing Guix to max out 
its heap while trying to process a dependency loop, as it was doing 
before). But the build fails when generating some latex formats – a problem 
I’m still investigating.

But this is progress nevertheless. :-)

I just force-pushed this branch with my current version of the patches.
