Hello Guix!

I have good news and bad news.

The bad news is that an image built with:

  ./pre-inst-env guix system image -t hurd-qcow2 \

fails to boot: it hangs right at:

  (system* "/hurd/mach-defpager")

Basically, ‘system*’ doesn’t work at the early-boot REPL.  This
was not surprising given <https://issues.guix.gnu.org/61095>, but
it is now that I’ve fixed it.  I’ve also confirmed that the same
binary works on a “current” (master) childhurd, which means it
could be something with the new ‘exec’ server or anything in between.
I think we can keep investigating that separately.

The good news is that ‘--target=i586-pc-gnu’ is back to life.  :-)
Compared to Josselin’s initial patch set, I made the following changes:

  • MiG is built from a tarball (which I’ll upload to
    ftp.gnu.org/gnu/guix/mirror after review); building from
    Git introduces a circular dependency in native i586-gnu builds,
    hence the tarball.

  • The glibc ‘configure’ issue is worked around in a less invasive
    way as I proposed earlier.

  • The GCC/libstdc++ patch application is likewise simplified,
    without introducing a world rebuild.

  • ‘system*’ in Guile is fixed.

  • ‘linux-pam’ builds again on GNU/Hurd.

If there are no objections I’d like to push that soonish so we can
move on with the branch.
