the check of the ’configure’ file, and here it is probably named

Many thanks Simon for the guidance - I'm learning many things working through this. Now I need more help please :@)

I've been able to get it built with the following package definition:

  #:use-module (guix packages)
  #:use-module (gnu packages)

(description "IceWM is a window manager for the X Window System. The goal of IceWM is speed, simplicity, and not getting in the user’s way. It comes with a taskbar with pager, global and per-window keybindings and a dynamic menu system. Application windows can be managed by keyboard and mouse. Windows
can be iconified to the taskbar, to the tray, to the desktop or be made
hidden. They are controllable by a quick switch window (Alt+Tab) and in a
window list. A handful of configurable focus models are
menu-selectable. Setups with multiple monitors are supported by RandR and
Xinerama. IceWM is very configurable, themeable and well documented. It
includes an optional external background wallpaper manager with transparency
support, a simple session manager and a system tray.")
    (license license:gpl2)))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

However it fails on running 'make check' with one test failed:
FAIL: strtest

I do not know how to solve this - configure doesn't have options for skip check, don't know how to overcome this. Could you help me get over this hurdle and then indicate how to proceed further?
