I just made this after discovering a source repo with a bootstrap
directory. Naturally it results in just about everything being rebuilt,
so it would a long time to fully test it, and I'm no experienced schemer
so I can't be sure this is the right way to add in this change. Feel
free to rewrite it a better way.

Subject: [PATCH] gnu-build-system: Don't try executing directories in
 bootstrap phase.

* guix/build/gnu-build-system.scm: (bootstrap): Change the file-exists?
procedure to one that excludes directories, so that we do not mistake it for a
script. For example if the source includes a bootstrap/ directory.
