pcr: add guile-git for developping with guile 3GNUtoo/guile-3-wip
guile-git has Guile version 3. Upstream Guix uses guile 3, while the Parabola package uses version 2.2: $ pacman -Q -i guix [...] Depends On : guile>=2.2.4 [...] This can create issues when manually compiling Guix git against Parabola guile package and using ./pre-inst-env for testing patches before sending them upstream: as the guile version is different, loading the compiled scm takes a huge amount of time and we also gets warnings like that for many files: ;;; WARNING: loading compiled file [...]/gnu/packages/messaging.go failed: ;;; In procedure load-thunk-from-memory: ELF file does not have native word size AUR also has many packages that depend on guile which is also provided by guile-git, however people using AUR are typically compiling the PKGBUILD themselves, and as I understand using guile-git with packaged software would require to recompile them for guile 3. However in practice that breaks guix's configure as it detects that /usr/bin/guile is not the same than the lastest guile. Signed-off-by: Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli <>
