I've had some success running debian packages from a chroot environment
on my guix installation.  There's a debootstrap package which allows you
to create a chroot environment.

Something like:

  guix shell debootstrap -- debootstrap --arch=amd64 bullseye 

and then:

  mount -t proc proc my-bullseye-install/proc
  mount -t devpts devpts my-bullseye-install/dev/pts
  chroot my-bullseye-install /bin/bash --login

You'll probably need to run all these as root.
