Hi Chris,

Thank you for explaining.  It still miss a point.

I understand.

Back to the Git's example, there is still something I miss: I cannot
build Git from source (e.g. no substitutes) using "guix build git"
without downloading -- and possibly building too -- all the Subversion

Other said, if I run "guix install git --no-substitutes" then I will
build all the Git outputs, so build all Subversion and other, and
finally only install the references of "out" (the rest could be garbage
