That's a tell sign of a Guile module top-level circular dependency.  I
think the usual way to work around that is usually to resort to use (@
(gnu packages toolchain) gcc-toolchain) in place of the input, so that
importing it at the top level is not necessary (the evaluation of inputs
is delayed, eliminating the cycle).

I hope that helps,
