I had thought js-mathjax was just the component files too and not
truely built from source. Maybe I was wrong. Currently, building this
from the true source requires a huge number of js packages and we
haven't got a npm importer and full _javascript_ bootstrap yet so I
wasn't sure what to do.

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.

If you like we can ignore this and I can modify calibre to disable
mathjax for now since I don't think it works with the old mathjax 2. I
would like to work on getting more _javascript_ in to guix properly

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.

Its just for rendering math in the eBook-viewer for books that include it. It shouldn't be essential. The reason I felt OK adding it is because its not like its actually proprietary, its just we haven't gotten around to integrating _javascript_ into guix yet fully, and it doesn't look like that will happen any time soon.
