Removing the '-g' option allows me to go further, however, I encounter some 
dependency problems.

I will get in touch with the project maintainer to get more help.

BTW, is there any articles that go in depth with the use of guix shell?

I have still difficulties to get en environment right and to understand all the 
subtelties of the available options for the command.

Thanks for the help,
