>From the manual: 
     Apply STRATEGY when an error occurs when reading FILE.  STRATEGY
     may be one of the following:

          Report the error concisely and exit.  This is the default

          Likewise, but also display a backtrace.

          Report the error and enter Guile's debugger.  From there, you
          can run commands such as ',bt' to get a backtrace, ',locals'
          to display local variable values, and more generally inspect
          the state of the program.  *Note (guile)Debug Commands::, for
          a list of available debugging commands.

Actually the --help to "guix system" hints about this but it is not
telling how to use it, which is a bug I think. (i'm going to report it
and send a patch)
