I am sorry you had to go to such troubles.  I should have explained
more clearly.

You could have used an existing Guix System installation, but the Git
checkout from which you ./pre-inst-env must be recent enough so that
it contains the usb-modeswitch-service-type as part of

My hope is that the second patch I posted for PPP suffices and your
checkout just did not work because it was old and did not contain

The manual describes many edge cases (“if you get that error message,
do this”) and irrelevant examples.  What I did was like the following:

cd …/guix-hack
… # `git pull --rebase` and `git am …` and all that
./configure --localstatedir=/var
sudo -i
cd …/guix-hack
./pre-inst-env guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm

`sudo -E ./pre-inst-env guix …` should work too.  You must *not*
launch your own guix-daemon.
