The error is gone after reconfiguring, but I still have a question about using 
Guix API from a Guile script.

Hmm, and is there any way for a Guile program installed as a Guix package to 
use the modules of the Guix obtained by the user with "guix pull" and also 
being able to take advantage of user-defined channels? Or is this just not 
possible at all?

Because I just tried creating a profile using my script and a manifest that 
includes one package from a custom channel of mine, and, as expected, I get an 

error: guile-glab: unknown package
error: failed to load 'requirements/guix.scm':
gnu/packages.scm:523:4: In procedure specification->package+output:
Throw to key `quit' with args `(1)'.
