No profit.

1. fontconfig existed, I removed it
2. run "fc-cache -r"
3. Closed all terminal instances, started new, but nothing. Also restarted the 
desktop session, and nothing.

Tobias, why is it that you have to clean caches by hand on the Guix System? I 
don't understand why the system can't do this for me...

Maybe the manual should have a troubleshooting section and we could add 
something there about dealing with font problems? Because, currently, the 
manual says that you may need "fc-cache -rv" to refresh the font cache, but 
only when you are using Guix on a foreign distribution.
