The profile, yes, see below. both for my standard user account and for
root.  But no config.scm, I am not running GuixSD but Guix on top of

You will see that my profile contains guix itself, which as to my
current understanding is not a good idea. I tried to remove it, but I
cannot even do "guix package -r guix" without compiling half of the free
software known in this universe. Including, once more, GTK, which is
probably a dependency of Emacs, but that's not a reason to compile GTK
for removing a package. It kind of looks like guix rebuilds all the
remaining stuff in my profile, which should not be necessary.

I realize of course that I am complaining about the performance of a
very old guix!
