I slightly messed up, distrobox-init should not be wrapped, nor should its 
shebang line be replaced, otherwise it won’t execute inside the container, 
because there is no /gnu/store in there.  But that is easy enough to fix, just 
bind mount Guix’s folders too:

distrobox create –additional-flags ’–mount type=bind,src=/gnu,target=/gnu 
–mount type= bind,src=/var/guix,target=/var/guix’ –image –name ubuntu-22-toolbox
