The build log I have for ‘guix build -S libpthread’ is:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Cloning into '/gnu/store/hq89ni9pgbsh989kybdv2fgllsyl8aqs-libpthread'...
Checking connectivity... done
Note: checking out 'e2ae1c43d168fc6f8b34332cbb0656e5d107cbf3'.

You are in 'detached HEAD' state. You can look around, make experimental
changes and commit them, and you can discard any commits you make in this
state without impacting any branches by performing another checkout.

If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may
do so (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:

  git checkout -b new_branch_name

HEAD is now at e2ae1c4... Merge branch 'foo'

As you can see, it does check out commit e2ae1c4.  However, the result
doesn’t have the sha256 hash that appears in the recipe, so it fails
(meaning: it cannot possibly go further and start building libpthread.)

What you should be doing is this:

  1. manually do a git checkout of the exact commit that you want;
  2. run ‘rm -rf .git’ in the checkout;
  3. run ‘guix hash -r .’ in the checkout;
  4. put that hash in the recipe.

>From there, ‘guix build -S libpthread’ should succeed, and you’ll be
sure it corresponds to the very commit that you have before your eyes.

Can you try that and report back?
