Guix,

Commit 84fa2ced47e16de66674ca169845a6f08cb5ef6c broke the vlang 
REPL (‘v repl’ or simply ‘v’ without arguments) in a new way:


[-- Attachment #1.2: Type: text/plain, Size: 278 bytes --]

~ λ v
For usage information, quit V REPL and run `v help`
cannot compile 
`/gnu/store/zf80y1bfdvpc6s3lrs33vlc6d1d745la-vlang-0.1.29/bin/cmd/tools/vrepl.v`: 
builder error: folder 
`/gnu/store/zf80y1bfdvpc6s3lrs33vlc6d1d745la-vlang-0.1.29/bin/cmd/tools` 
is not writable

The compiler works fine.

The REPL didn't work before so this isn't a regression per se, but 
it still needs to be fixed.

One of the challenges of packaging v is that its install script assumes that you'll install it in a mutable folder, and uses that assumption to lazily build the included tools as they're needed instead of eagerly building everything up-front.

There's an included command for eagerly building these tools, which we should invoke in order to make sure that the repl &c are available at package installation time and the user won't need write access to the v directory.

This patch presents progress in that direction, but it has a ways to go. Like golang, the v build system resolves dependencies on git repos as it goes, so once I run `v build-tools` it wants to go and fetch the vlang/markdown repo. So we'll probably need to package that ahead of time.

That, however, raises the chicken-and-egg problem. Do we create a vlang-bootstrap package that we use to compile the deps (like vlang/markdown) and then in turn use those as inputs to the "real" v package which also builds all the tools? Do we include those deps as explicit source-only native-inputs of the v package? I don't know which strategy I prefer yet, I'd be interested to hear any input from others.

So in the spirit of progress here's my work-in-progress patch!

Cheers,
Ryan
