In my experience, these warnings are noncritical. In the past, guix
worked fine even with these warngings (they are gone now). I think you
would be fine if the guile program you run uses only ascii in I/O
(otherwise some garbage characters might get printed).

However, I think we should find out the root cause of these warnings. My
guess is that this is because guile cannot find locales from glibc. I
might investigate using a debian sid chroot later if I have time.
