Hi,

How can I do a compilation of the packages natively?

What I mean is that, for example in Gentoo it can be used inside
/etc/portage/make.conf: CFLAGS="-O2 -march=native -mtune=native" Is that
possible in guix?

Thank you very much for your time, I will be waiting for your kind
responses.

Greetings.

Yes this is possible!  You can disable substitutes to compile all
packages natively.

Currently guix does not support gentoo style flags..yet.  Though there
are talks to do something like that. If you wanted to compile packages
with specific compile flags, then you'll need to make custom package
definitions.

I think Charles meant compilation optimized for his actual processor
instead of being compatible with all x86_64. Like with the following
CFLAGS:

I think there's no use of giving "-mtune" when you have "-march", c.f.:
https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/x86-Options.html#index-march-14

I've heard it is, but not seen the recipe.

Gentoo use flags are something different, used to disable things in
packages.

That's probably what Charles wants, but in a global way, settings CFLAGS once
for the whole distro.

The manual mentions the ‘package-input-rewriting’ procedure in section
“8.3 Defining Package Variants”.  I guess you could write something like
this in a manifest file:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(define custom-package
  (package
    (inherit some-package)
    ...))
    
(define package-custom-cflags
  ;; This is a procedure to replace SOME-PACKAGE by CUSTOM-PACKAGE
  ;; recursively.
  (package-input-rewriting `((,some-package . ,custom-package))))

(packages->manifest
  (map package-custom-cflags (list package1 package2 ...)))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Totally untested though.
