I've read an actual guix manual pages from the local source tree, figured out 
the consist of %desktop-services Scheme variable and retyped my config. These 
things were done there: removing gdm-service-type, adding slim-service-type and 
configuring slim-service-type to work with touchpad. Then `guix system 
reconfigure /etc/config.scm' was run. gdm disappeared, as you said. It will not 
pull GNOME 3 stuff now.

                  (services (cons* 
                             (service xfce-desktop-service-type)
                             (service dhcp-client-service-type)
                             (service slim-service-type)

                              (remove (lambda (service)
                                        (member (service-kind service)
                                                (list ntp-service-type 
                                      %desktop-services) ;end of remove lambda 

                              (wpa-supplicant-service-type config =>
                                                            (interface "wlp2s0")

                              (slim-service-type config =>
                                                    '("Section \"InputClass\"
Identifier \"touchpad\"
Driver \"libinput\"
MatchIsTouchpad \"on\"
Option \"Tapping\" \"on\"

                               c => (elogind-configuration (handle-lid-switch 
                              ) ;;end of modify-services
                             )) ;;end of services

Thank you, Mark!
