[HELP] Packaging mupdf

I'm trying to learn how to package code using Guix and packaging
mupdf doing do. I need some help to continue.

I've followed packaging tutorial for guix[1] and hopefully know
enough scheme (Racket in fact) to carry one.

The problem with the way mupdf is package today[2] is that it
does not include the patched version of freeglut that is
necessary for the copy-pasting functionality[3].

What does work is to follow the build instructions of mupdf[4]
which boils down to:

  git clone --recursive git://
  cd mupdf
  git submodule update --init
  sudo apt-get install mesa-common-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev xorg-dev libxcursor-dev libxrandr-dev libxinerama-dev
  make prefix=~/bin/mupdf install

So, I guess that the objective is to somehow make guix execute
the above script.

I've been wondering around in the doc of guix w/o much success.
Is there anyone that could help me out? I can document the thing
and post it on my blog or give it back here for anyone to do
anything with it, should it be of some use.

Many thanks,
