You could either rerun ./configure on the machine, so that it
substitutes the shebang with the right file name for ‘guile’.

Alternately, you could copy the profile from the first machine to the

In addition, you would need to make
/var/guix/profiles/per-user/$USER/guix-profile-XXX-link point to the
imported profile (currently this has to be done manually.)
