Hi Emmanuel!

I tried to use trivial-build-system with
gcc-toolchain input, all works well when I compile
it manually in a 'guix shell'

Because ‘guix shell’ sets up a proper profile; quite unlike the trivial-build-system.

Using trivial-build-system here *is* the bug. It's not a starter kit for building better things; it's for trivial packages that don't need building.

Rather than waste your time fighting that fact, use the gnu-build-system. It is that starter kit.

If your tarball doesn't provide some standard GNU things like ./configure or ‘make check’, that's quite common. You can simply (delete 'configure), set #:tests? #f, etc.

Happy building,
