More or less, the tl;dr of updates right now is:
git checkout upstream/master; git pull; git checkout -b gnurl-$new curl-$new # 
tag of desired version
git cherry-pick `git log gnurl-$old | head -n 1 | cut -c8-`
git mergetool # or whatever needs to be used to fix the broken ones
git cherry-pick --continue

# run the guix-gnurl.scm to test.

Where some parts of this manual procedure have been changed now.
I'll try a simple `make dist` next time.

I will compare my nroff or whatever it was called package with
yours and see if there's anything left to add, if you think it
should go into guix, it's good for me.

So the changed shebang in the is a bug on my side or in
the autotools in Guix? I'm not looking at the sources right now,
but I think I could simply add a line (for make dist) which
changes the shebang back to /bin/sh before assembling the
tarball. After all it's just a shebang.
