Hello,

I started a patch to add guile-fibers, which I know many of us are
intertested in giving a spin, but I haven't gotten things to build
right.  The funny thing is I can get it to build fine from the tarball
itself.  I'm missing something in the package, but I don't know what.

Here's the error I get during "make":

Funny thing is, if I become the builder user and then try running
./configure && make after sourcing the environment variables, things
build fine.

One of the two must be true, afaict:
 - ... either there's something in the system environment that's being
   included that I'm missing
 - ... or Guix is patching the gnu-build-system stuff in such a way
   that things are different than when I run ./configure && make?

I'd really like this package to work but am not sure I have the time to
continue on it soon.  If someone wants to take over from here, go for
it.  Maybe what I'm missing is something obvious...

With these arguments I can build fibers.

    (arguments
     `(#:parallel-build? #f
       #:phases
       (modify-phases %standard-phases
         (add-after 'unpack 'patch-epoll-path
           (lambda* (#:key outputs #:allow-other-keys)
             (substitute* "fibers/epoll.scm"
               (("load-extension \"epoll\"")
                "load-extension \".libs/epoll\""))
             #t)))))

I don’t think that’s right, though, because it probably won’t find epoll
at runtime.  Maybe this can be avoided at build time with an environment
variable?  In the end I think “epoll” should be replaced with the full
store path of the epoll shared object.
