Sorry for answering late.

I'm confident that python should be a *normal* input – although it
should be tested (and the result documented in guix.texi). I'm short in
time, so I can't test myself now.

From the Documentation [1] I can not tell exactly how libpython behaves
if used embedded. But the code [2] says:

    Step 3 [… search python3 on $PATH]

    Step 4. Search the directories pointed to by the preprocessor variables
    PREFIX and EXEC_PREFIX.  These are supplied by the Makefile but can be
    passed in as options to the configure script.

So the PREFIX guix is setting is honoured (as a last resort).

BTW: I assume glib should be a normal input, too.
