Thanks for reminding.  I forgot it completely, because the only Emacs
package I have currently installed with Guix is emacs-vterm, because
Guix doesn't work with the Emacs I compiled myself.  I have attached the
patch to this message and CCed to guix-patches.

CC guix-patches, for each Emacs package I have installed, Emacs echoes
"Loading /gnu/store/...-emacs-.../...-autoloads.el" while startup.  I
have attached a patch fixing it (thanks to "André A. Gomes
<>" for preparing it).
