You don’t need to add guile-json here.  It’s part of the environment for “guix”.

One time “make clean” is quite sufficient.  You don’t need to run it
twice.  “make clean-go” is a subset of “make clean”, so if you already
ran the latter (twice!) then you don’t need “make clean-go”.

I can’t remember the last time I ran “make clean”.  Even “make clean-go”
is pretty rare.  What does “will not work” mean?
