Indeed.  For this reason, I added the following line to my

  export INFOPATH="$HOME/guix/doc${INFOPATH:+:}$INFOPATH"

where $HOME/guix is my local checkout of Guix's Git repository.  This
ensures that the manual I read using Emacs and the Info reader matches
the Guix code I have checked out (after I've built it, of course).  Do
you think it would be worth it if I added a small section about this to
the "Contributing" section in the manual?  It seems to come up from time
to time on the mailing list.
