As described in #43303 [1], the package gcc-toolchain providing the complete
GCC compilation toolchain is not easy to reach; even the manual has a
dedicated section [2].

Commit f17e1802ec325e5cc86d4908f05ac69aafdf39da fixes:

  guix install gcc

which will install instead gcc-toolchain, the expected compilation package.

However, there are still discoverability issues, e.g.,

  guix search gcc | recsel -C -P name | head

reports first the package libgccjit and second gccgo, which have both too
general synopsis and description.  The 2 first patches try to improve the

Then, because the file gnu/packages/gcc.scm exists and the relevance scoring
function weights the filename too, the query "guix search gcc" artificially
ranks first libgccjit and gccgo.  Therefore the third patch fixes this


All the best,

zimoun (3):
  gnu: libgccjit: Reword synopsis and description.
  gnu: gccgo: Reword synopsis and description.
  gnu: gcc-toolchain: Reword description.
