system-installed emacs does not find system-installed fonts
(address . bug-guix@gnu.org)

Not technically not a bug because the doc says ...
2.6.2 X11 Fonts
The ‘fontconfig’ package in Guix looks for fonts in‘$HOME/.guix-profile’ by default. Thus, to allow graphical applicationsinstalled with Guix to display fonts, you have to install fonts withGuix as well.
But it does seem counter-intuitive that emacs 'M-x list-fontsets' gives ...
Fontset: -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-defaultFontset: -*-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-standardFontset: -urw-Nimbus Mono L-normal-normal-normal-*-13-*-*-*-m-0-fontset-startup
... when the system package list is ...
% *Guix Package L... 5437 Guix-Output-List [...] emacs 24.5 out Yes The extensible, customizable, self-documenting text editor [...] font-dejavu 2.34 out Yes Vera font family derivate with additional characters [...]

(I have not checked but) I believe this can be fixed by adding"/run/current-system/profile/share/fonts" to '--with-add-fonts'configure flag of the 'fontconfig' package.
For now I think the following recipe should work:
1. Make a file "~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf" with the following contents:
<?xml version="1.0"?><!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd"><fontconfig> <dir>/run/current-system/profile/share/fonts</dir></fontconfig>
2. Run "fc-cache -fv".

Indeed. I realize I did this independently ine71ef7adaece7e132a5059139122b45083ea1b39.
The better fix will be to rebuild Fontconfig as you suggest. Would youlike to try that and apply it to ‘core-updates’?
Thanks,Ludo’.

If you’ve confirmed that passing a comma-separated list here works asexpected, then please push to ‘core-updates’.
Thank you!
