I'd like to test this, but I can't build Guix, so I can't test it.  I
don't know when I'll be able to test it, since I don't know when I'll be
able to build Guix:

"configure: error: Guix requires zlib."

Is there a specific commit that you can recommend I use when applying
the patches?  Perhaps one you built successfully yourself?  If you could
also give me your currently installed Guix version so I can "guix pull"
to it, that would be helpful.
