Hi Guix,

I have stumbled upon this phase while I was working on making substitute
not fail silently. Turns out this substitution is no longer necessary
since we aren't building with --enable-obsolete-rpc anymore. I'm not
sure about the unsetenv parts, though. Switching them to
{C,CPLUS}_INCLUDE_PATH, which is where the header paths actually are
right now, did not change how `guix graph --type=references` looks for
glibc-final (nor glibc-final-with-bootstrap-bash, for that matter).

The phase itself was introduced in...

    gnu: glibc: Make sure the bootstrap libc is not in $CPATH.

    This fixes a bug whereby the bootstrap-glibc headers could be picked up
    when building, which could be noticed by the fact that the
    .debug files contained references to bootstrap-glibc.

    * gnu/packages/base.scm (glibc-final-with-bootstrap-bash)[arguments]:
      Add 'pre-configure' phase.
      [inputs]: Remove 'alist-delete' call.

The debug output does not refer to a bootstrap glibc anymore whether the phase
is there or not, though it does refer to gcc-cross-boot0:lib. Does this
mean that the phase is simply obsolete, and only the hurd parts should
remain, or is the reference to gcc a bug? Perhaps gcc should have a
separate output for the includes it provides (stdarg and such) so that
this reference doesn't bring in the whole mesboot tree? This would
improve the closure of gcc-toolchain:debug...
