I forgot to patch the path in leapsec.ha to use for Guix's leapseconds
file. Should I do that, or leave out tzdata?

>From the hare mailing list:

"Notably, Hare requires the installation of the leap-seconds.list file in
the tzdata package in order to handle leap seconds properly.

Hare will work in the absence of this file, or of tzdata as a whole, but
users will encounter bugs in timekeeping logic."
