TiEmu Guix Package Definition

I submitted a package definition for TiEmu, a Ti calculator emulator:

https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=40709#8

My build mysteriously is not able to load the ROMs that ship with it, but I was able to load pedrom fine from the original pedrom archive.

zs program running on pedrom on emulated TI-92

It should be fun to explorer different programs that can be run on pedrom. Mathematical programs will in principle be of the greatest interest, but I must say it is fun to be able to run pacman on a TI-89 :)

P.S. If any of my friends want to give me any TI calculators they aren’t using, I might be able to have some fun with those. I’m thinking TI-84 or fancier.

Can run autoconf -i -f and configure --enable-usb10 and make without errors, though two deprecation warnings appear.

Am working on package definitions for tiemu and dependencies.
