guix installs stuff into /gnu/store.

X11 files are there in the guest, but under a different directory
(/gnu/store). guix doesn't use /usr. If xpra uses some env var to
check where X11 files should be, I can open an issue in guix and
they'll make sure this env is set when xpra is run.

What I did by passing --expose was to share files from my ArchLinux
box. I'll be using this hack since it worked.

Anyway, I did expect problems, but I didn't know how to debug.
Therefore I came here.

Okay, I filled an issue in the tracker:

I'm using X11.

Wayland, never again.
