It's not a good sign that it segfaults easily; Someone(TM) should figure
out the source of the crashes even if rebasing happens to fix them,
which I wouldn't necessarily count on. I'll try to do some debugging in
the next few days.

I can confirm that, it seems to get stuck at:

Reading file "/tmp/guix-build-[...]/[...]/leim/SKK-DIC/SKK-JISYO.L" ...
Collecting OKURI-NASI entries ...
collected 70% ...

even after running for quite a while:

guix build -c32 guile-emacs  5.29s user 0.47s system 0% cpu 28:02:53.21 total

I'm not sure what's going on here, as I've definitely installed the
guile-emacs package before (though not recently) and it doesn't use the
standard emacs and guile packages, for obvious reasons. I can probably
use guix time-machine to figure out what's happening. That build phase
was always excruciatingly slow, but not *that* slow.
