Hi ng0,

I don’t know what the mistake might be, but I can tell that everything
builds fine.  :-)

I committed the whole series.  One comment:

Such URLs actually map to the “regular” SourceForge URLs for which
mirror://sourceforge can be used.  However the mapping cannot be

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ guix download
Starting download of /tmp/guix-file.dxnmks
following redirection to 

--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

So we could change all the URLs to
mirror://sourceforge/lxde/WEIRDNAME/PACKAGE-VERSION.tar.xz for the
marginal benefit of getting proper mirror support.  If you’re interested
in it, that’d be welcome.

Besides, it would be nice to have an ‘lxde-service-type’ for GuixSD if
you feel like giving it a try!

Thank you!
