I will try to see if there is anything that can be done in terms of local/home 

I wonder if there's a reasonable upstream/Guix fix for the luatex package 

I would really like to be able to get this working; I do a lot of work which 
requires LuaTeX and being able to work with additional fonts, and currently 
this means I cannot do this work on any of my Guix machines, it seems.
