thank you for this patch.  I’m trying it on my i686 with 1GB of RAM now.
My own attempt to revert the commit to build all files in one process
resulted in a guix pull that would only go to 20.4% and then sit there
doing nothing.

I’ll report back once I manage to run “guix pull --url=/path/to/guix”
with this patch.
