For what it's worth, I have a private channel that defines packages of my 
private projects in GitLab. I haven't used the channel for a while, but SSH 
authentication worked by using "git-checkout" records instead of "origin" 
records in package "source" fields. For instance:

  (url "")
  (commit (string-append "v" version))))
