That's my first time when I am trying to apply patch to guix.

That's a package which is required by some software like bitbake. So I think it would be nice to have.

Best Regards,

Looking at the README, it appears to be a Debian project. As such, I do not think the FSF directory entry can count as home page. The closest thing to a home page I found is: <> (there's also, but that's version-specific).

It also contains some binaries (generated Autotools files) and bundled dependencies  (configure, config.guess,, depcomp, install-sh, missing, config.sub, acinclude.m4, aclocal.m4), try removing them (in a snippet). That way, the problem of old Autotools not supporting new architectures is avoided (it's sometimes encountered for aarch64, powerpc and riscv64).

AFAICT no version of the GPL is specified anywhere. As such, by condition (9) of the GPL 2,

[...] If the Program does not specify a version number of
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
, so it appears to be gpl1+, not gpl2-only.
