hi everyone! tried to build emacs in guix env

here is my manifest:
----------------------------------
(specifications->manifest
 '("make"
   "gcc-toolchain"
   "gnutls"
   "ncurses"
   "mailutils"
   "libx11"
   "gtk+"
   "libxft"
   "libtiff"
   "giflib"
   "libjpeg"
   "imagemagick"
   "acl"
   "libpng"
   "zlib"
   "librsvg"
   "libxpm"
   "libxml2"
   "libice"
   "libsm"
   "alsa-lib"
   "dbus"
   "libotf"
   "m17n-lib"))
during configuration i got this error:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
checking for xaw3d... no
checking for libXaw... configure: error: No X toolkit could be found.
If you are sure you want Emacs compiled without an X toolkit, pass
  --with-x-toolkit=no
to configure.  Otherwise, install the development libraries for the toolkit
that you want to use (e.g. Gtk+) and re-run configure.
maybe somebody had same problem?

Hi Adam,

The guix environment command by default gives an environment *required to build* the given package. 

In this case

guix environment emacs

Should get you close. Then you can combine with the ad-hoc flag to adjust if the requirements of the tarball are different than the package definition in guix. 

Hope that helps,

John

I would suggest adding pkg-config to the list of packages. Alternatively
you can try using 'guix environment emacs' to get the inputs that guix
uses in the build environment when building emacs.

hi it helped. after "guix environment emacs" configuration was ok. but there some additional questions i have:
1) where "guix environment emacs" look for env description?
2) i tried to recreate env using inputs described in gnu/packages/emacs.scm in emacs package but got error described in the first message. is there way for manual recreating environment that i didn't notice?
2) what is better way to build sources as they are (from tar, just for testing, not for packaging)?

1) I would guess that guix environment emacs, looks in the package
definition to discover emacs' dependencies.

2) Are you trying to create a custom emacs package?
If so, then you might like my jmacs package:
https://notabug.org/jbranso/guix-packages/src/master/packages/jmacs.scm

3) I would guess "guix build <package name>".  You could have a custom
channel that is local to your machine.  Any packages in it, take
precedent over packages in guix proper.  That is to say, that your
custom emacs package named "emacs" and is available locally, would be
built instead of the "emacs" package in guix.  You could also define

I personally do this in my ~/.bash_profile

#+BEGIN_SRC sh
    export GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH=/home/joshua/prog/gnu/guix/guix-packages/
#+END_SRC

In simple cases you can use “guix build --with-source=… emacs”, where
the argument to “--with-source” is a tarball.
