I didn't modify it in any way—it's run from the 0.14.0 armhf binary download.
What I wrote about—modifying it—I'm simply thinking about. I would still hope
the failure is fixed upstream as it shouldn't be failing on guix rebuild.
The “hoops to jump through” I was referring to are the setup on Android
side—you need to symlink /gnu and /var every reboot, create /etc/resolv.conf
etc. But no modifications to Guix per se are necessary…

Thanks for this guide—I'll try to experiment with it, if guile-ssh doesn't get
