It seems that this must be run from the “doc” directory, because it
assumes that the git repository root is in the parent directory of the
current working directory.

I haven’t been able to successfully run it yet.  I’m on the master
branch and issued

    GUIX_MANUAL_VERSION=1.0.1 ../pre-inst-env guix build -f build.scm

from within the “doc” directory, but this is what I get:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;;; (repo "/home/rekado/dev/gx/branches/master/doc/..")
guix build: error: failed to load 'build.scm':
git/branch.scm:101:8: Git error: cannot locate remote-tracking branch 
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I’ll try to debug this and report back.
