I noticed that the package definition builds 'lib/libhackrf.a';
installing static libraries is usually disabled for Guix packages.
Also, some of the lines of the package definition are indented with tabs
instead of spaces, and the commit message is missing the
" * gnu/packages/radio.scm (hackrf): New variable." line.

In theory, adding the hackrf package as input of the gnuradio-osmosdr
package should be enough (the library should be auto-detected when
compiling and the support activated).
However, I don't have the hardware to test if it really works.
