I understand that >=1.12 might be better than 1.11, but is there
something we can do to make it support both?
Or should we just tag it as 'Building Guix from git source is not
supported on Ubuntu' ?

Some dirty motification of the system might be needed to add automake
1.12+ into system without breaking the package dependency tree. :-(
I know Guix is trying to fix the current situation, but that's where I'm
(and people who wanna try Guix are) in now...

Those files are not exist anymore after the `make check`, as they're
created in test-tmp/ for the test only.

After some tries, I can see
- -r--r--r-- 1 bluet bluet 899 Jan  1  1970
but didn't catch the

address@hidden:~/guix-0.2$ umask

Hope these helps. :-)
