Yes, this probably works.  I have pushed a `wip-binaries' branch,
branched-off of current master and added recipes for mescc-tools and mes
bootstrap tarballs.

I have put the results of

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
./pre-inst-env guix build --system=i686-linux mes-minimal-stripped-tarball
./pre-inst-env guix build --system=i686-linux 
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Once the patches are cleaned-up/we decide how we want it, we can build
and inject the resulting binaries into current core-updates.  I don't
really like it a lot to have built them on a totally new branch but it's
the best we can do right now, I think.
