Well, do you do

  source ~/.guix-profile/etc/profile

after installing all the dependencies (gcc-toolchain, bzip2, etc.)

I do not use 'pyenv' and I had bad experience when mixing "package
manager".  To have other Python versions than the default ones, I
would create variant by using package transformation

  guix build python

but there is no guarantee it works for all the versions. Well, I would
start by a package transformation at the command-line and if it fails
then compile --without-tests or create a package variant and use

Hope that helps,
