See the comment in this definition:

(define package-with-python2
  ;; Note: delay call to 'default-python2' until after the 'arguments' field
  ;; of packages is accessed to avoid a circular dependency when evaluating
  ;; the top-level of (gnu packages python).
  (package-with-explicit-python (delay (default-python2))
                                "python-" "python2-"
                                #:variant-property 'python2-variant))
