Hi,

thanks for the patch.

I’m always a bit worried when I see the copy-build-system, because the
lack of a configuration step often means that the tool makes possibly
invalid assumptions about the runtime environment.

I see that you’re patching the locations of “podman”, “wget”, and
“command -v”, but the tools contain even more references, e.g. to
“curl”, “grep”, “sed”, coreutils, “host-spawn”, “sudo”, “pinentry”,
“less”, …

It may be a better idea to wrap all the executables in a reasonable
default environment.

What do you think?

I don't know how much longer the official packaging for guix will take, but with the distrobox it will be possible to download many free software applications that are taking to be brought to the guix package manager
