I’m glad to hear it!

Okay.  I was confused about the “raco setup” example, but the other step
makes more sense now.

I will say that even on Debian, with an regular user, I have seen
“permission denied” errors because Racket tries to update files in

Actually I think there is only one bug, which is the grafts thing.  This
bug was originally about compiling OpenSSL files to the store.  Grafting
doesn’t break OpenSSL it just makes Racket try to recompile its OpenSSL
FFI wrappers.

I have a patch, too.  I sent it to guix-patches, but I must have made a
mistake because it ended up in bug-guix attached to this bug report.
The patch can be found at <>.  Also, the
attachment didn’t get sent to the list, but did make it to the bug page.
Hm....  Sorry for the goof!
