Apparently the problem was due to the build action being triggered as
part of a "guix environment" command. I could launch the command using
"guix build address@hidden" and it completed successfully.

Guix build doesn't come with default option value for the
max-silent-time, but guix environment does, and it is set to 3600
s. This is defined under (guix scripts environment):

(define %default-options
  `((system . ,(%current-system))
    (substitutes? . #t)
    (graft? . #t)
    (max-silent-time . 3600)
    (verbosity . 0)))

If this is by design, I guess this issue can be closed.
