'remove' procedure is from (srfi srfi-1) module, so you need to use it
in your config (see below).

Note that after fixing it, you'll get complaints about other unbound

- 'avahi-service-type': it is from (gnu services avahi);

- 'tor-service': it is from (gnu services networking);

- 'wicd-service-type': it is also from (gnu services networking), but it
  is not exported (I think we should fix it), so now you have to use it
  like this:

  (@@ (gnu services networking) wicd-service-type)

  which means: "give me 'wicd-service-type' from (gnu services
  networking) module, and I don't care if it's not exported".

You shouldn't (!) use 'services' (or any other operating-system field
more than *ONCE*).  You can combine 'cons*' and 'remove' like this:

   (cons* (tor-service)
          (remove (lambda (service)
                    (or (eq? (service-kind service)
                        (eq? (service-kind service)
                             (@@ (gnu services networking) wicd-service-type))
                        (eq? (service-kind service)
                             (@@ (gnu services networking) ntp-service-type))))

Note: if you want to remove wicd service, you also need to remove ntp
service, otherwise you'll get:

  guix system: error: service 'ntpd' requires 'networking', which is undefined
