I just tried using:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$(./pre-inst-env guix system vm -e '(@@ (gnu tests lightdm) %lightdm-os)') -m 
1G -smp cores=4
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

And this is what I saw, logging in as 'root' graphically, starting xterm
and issuing:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
root@komputilo ~# echo $PATH
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Seems to be alright.

What would the system test look like?

1. Login using the login manager (difficult unless using autologin --
I've tried).

2. Open a terminal, run 'echo $PATH' and run the OCR on it?  That
doesn't sound too great.

I've pushed the series for now, feel free to experiment with it!
