Going on with the package, I think we only need this patch beside the
shabang adjustment:

         ## System
         my ($bsd_type,$language,$os) = ('','','');
         my ($cpu_sleep,$dl_timeout,$limit,$ps_count,$usb_level) = 
        -my @paths = qw(/sbin /bin /usr/sbin /usr/bin /usr/X11R6/bin 
/usr/local/sbin /usr/local/bin);
        -$ENV{'PATH'} = 
        +my @paths = qw(/sbin /bin /run/setuid-programs 
/run/current-system/profile/bin /run/current-system/profile/sbin);
        +push (@paths, "$ENV{'HOME'}/.guix-profile/bin");
        +push (@paths, "$ENV{'HOME'}/.guix-profile/sbin");
        +$ENV{'PATH'} = 
        +$ENV{'PATH'} = '$ENV:$ENV{'HOME'}/.guix-profile/bin";
        +$ENV{'PATH'} = '$ENV:$ENV{'HOME'}/.guix-profile/sbin";
         my $sensors_cpu_nu = 0;

Basically inxi sets a 'paths' variable with the usual Unix paths and
then forces the environment PATH to the same value.

My suggestion instead: set 'paths' to /run/current-system/* and

What do you think?  Is this generic enough?  Is ~/.guix-profile a
guaranteed location for the user profile?

Last but not least, what's the better approach between
- a patch,
- a substitute,
- a snippet?

I only know very little about Perl so the above code might look very clumsy.

There is very little future in being right when your boss is wrong.
