If you install Guix using the binary installation method, this will not
be an issue, because the binary install tarball is self-contained, i.e.
it includes all of Guix's dependencies, including Guile, GnuTLS,
sqlite3, guile-sqlite3, guile-json, libgc, libffi, etc, all the way down
to the C library, even low-level things like the dynamic linker, all in
/gnu/store.  You should be able to unpack it on any system with a Linux
kernel on one of our supported architectures, no matter how bare its
userspace environment is, follow the remaining install steps described
on the following page, and it should just work.
