Thank you for responding.

I think this only impacts running `grub-mkconfig` and not booting, doesn't it? 
Aside from that, the echo statements I gave suggest that the issue is with 
setting the language.

Still, I removed some old generations of my system. Things went a little 
faster, but I'm guessing that's probably a side-effect of shrinking my 
/gnu/store path.

Thank you for the suggestion.
