When building guix from git in a clean local copy (run `sudo git clean
-dfx` first) using this command:
guix environment guix -- sh -c './bootstrap && ./configure --localstatedir=/var && make -j16 && make check'
One test in `tests/syscalls.scm` is failing.

Here is the log from just the `make check` command:
