when creating packages and refining the build step by step, I end up
with many entries in the store I do not need. When tying to delete them,
only a few are removed and many are kept. E.g:

# guix gc -d /gnu/store/*teensy*
finding garbage collector roots...
deleting `/gnu/store/…-teensy-loader-cli-2.1-1.f289b7a.drv'
deleting `/gnu/store/…-teensy-loader-cli-2.1-1.f289b7a.tar.xz.drv'
guix gc: error: build failed: cannot delete path
`/gnu/store/…-teensy-loader-cli-2.1-1.f289b7a.tar.gz.drv' since it is
still alive
$ ls -d /gnu/store/*teensy* | wc -l

The one still alive if okay, since I have an older version of this
package installed in my current environment.

How do I get rid of these ca. 30 outdated store items?
