I believe this is related to the method guix is bootstrapped on x86_64
As far as I know there is a minimal bootstrap seed which is 32 bits,
and the final
bootstrap is cross-compiled to x86_64. The problem is that for the
sake of simplicity
the current bootstrap binaries were created with 32 bits in mind. I am
sure that they
would appreciate any help to get x86_64 bootstrapped directly. Does
that make sense?
