Commit 5401dd7 does that.

There’s one difference compared to guix-package: guix-build doesn’t try
to parse “sub-derivation names” like guix-package does (after a
colon–see the manual), because that doesn’t make sense here since
guix-build builds all the outputs of a derivation.

BTW, you could have used:

  guix-build -e '(@ (gnu packages libjpeg) libjpeg-8)'

Less convenient, but more efficient.
