Did you add a singularity service to your config.scm?  That should handle 
declaring the helper programs as setuid, and creating the container mount 
directory in /var/singularity/mnt (see "Miscellaneous Services" in the manual). 
 You'll add the service via, e.g.:

    ;; ...
      (cons (service singularity-service-type)
