You can remove all unused packages with “guix gc”.  Individual store
items can be removed with “guix gc -d /gnu/store/…”.

“Unused” means that no profile generation refers to the item, so you may
want to delete old profile generations with “guix package -d” first.

After building it once from source you won’t have to build it again
until the dependencies to Icecat are modified.

Building Icecat does indeed take a long time.  The current version is
52.6.0-gnu1 and should be built by our build farms.  When you’re using
the latest version of Guix then you should be able to get a binary as
soon as the build farms have compiled that package.   Only if no binary
is available you will have to build it from source.
