Hello Peter,

I've removed Ludovic from a Cc because I think it doesn't seem a good
thing to disturb him with following questions.

When ‘guix gc --references PATH’ shows a ‘/gnu/store/…-INPUT’,
then ‘/gnu/store/…-INPUT’ *will not* be garbage collected.

For example:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ guix gc --references $(env GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH= guix build --no-grafts inxi)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
‘file’, ‘xrandr’ and ‘xprop’ packages *will not* be garbage collected.

Yes, apologies for a mistyping.
