True. js-mathjax is not truly built from source. A true source build
will properly depend on a huge number of other js packaces. js-mathjax
only redoes the minification step. In light of this, perhaps we should
remove js-mathjax from Guix. But, I'm not sure.

Yes, disabling mathjax for calibre is a good way to go if the
functionality is not too critical. But, I don't know much about
calibre. So, someone else should take a call.
