Hi. I'm trying to build Xawtv in GuixSD to use my webcamera during screencasts. I wrote package defintion for xawtv, it passes configuration and build phases, but fails on install phase with error:

/gnu/store/6908gy3pws0ccys49ni98idwnicchlr2-coreutils-8.26/bin/install: invalid user ‘root’

What do I need to do to avoid this error?

Here is xawtv.scm that I wrote:

(define-module (xawtv)
  #:use-module (guix licenses)
  #:use-module (gnu packages)
  #:use-module (gnu packages ncurses)
  #:use-module (gnu packages image)
  #:use-module (gnu packages video)
  #:use-module (gnu packages base)
  #:use-module (gnu packages linux)
  #:use-module (gnu packages xorg)
  #:use-module (gnu packages perl)
  #:use-module (gnu packages fontutils)
  #:use-module (guix build-system gnu)
  #:use-module (guix packages)
  #:use-module (guix download)
  #:use-module (guix gexp))

(define-public xawtv
   (name "xawtv")
   (version "3.103")
   (source (origin
            (method url-fetch)
            (uri (string-append ""
                                version ".tar.bz2"))
   (build-system gnu-build-system)
    `(("ncurses" ,ncurses)
