Hi,

On commit 100281dd200d0a59958fb17dc6de75d3913e2b7a, the build for
texlive-latex-graphics sometimes fails and sometimes succeeds. To
reproduce the issue, just try "guix build texlive-latex-graphics" or
"guix build --check texlive-latex-graphics" a few times. I used this
cumbersome one-liner to try it a bunch:

while :; do if ./pre-inst-env guix build --cores=1 --check texlive-latex-graphics; then echo SUCCESS; else echo FAIL; fi; done 2>&1 | tee /tmp/out

Then you can summarize the results with another cumbersome one-liner
like this:

cat /tmp/out | grep -e ^FAIL -e ^SUCCESS | sort | uniq -c | awk '{arr[$2] = $1; arr["TOTAL"] += $1} END {for (i in arr) printf("%5d (%6.2f%%): %s\n", arr[i], 100*arr[i]/arr["TOTAL"], i)}'

This failure happens on powerpc64le-linux and x86_64-linux. It might
happen on other architectures; I didn't test them. In my testing, it
happened about 18% of the time on powerpc64le-linux, and about 1% of the
time on x86_64-linux.

Here is the error from the powerpc64le-linux case. Except for the store
paths, the error is identical to the x86_64-linux case:

Signal 6 is SIGABRT on these systems; I'm not sure what the failure
means or what might be causing it, but I haven't dug into it much yet.

I observed similar issues on several texlive packages:
