Alternately, there’s a really easy way: grab the binary tarball and
follow the steps at <http://www.gnu.org/software/guix/download/> (make
sure to check the ownership of /var and /root after unpacking it; the
extracting the current tarball will incorrectly change the owner.)

  git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/guix.git

  guix environment guix
  autoreconf && ./configure --localstatedir=/var \

.. or “guix build gcc-4.7 --target=i686-pc-gnu --log-file”.
