     I copied my package definition to gnu/packages and added a line for it in 
gnu- Then, I ran './pre-inst-env guix build zsh' and got this 
     guix build: error: failed to connect to 
     No such file or directory

This would suggest that you haven't got a guix daemon running.

Install guix and set up the daemon as described in Chapter 2 of the GUIX manual.
