That's not a procedure call, actually, because the entire form is
quoted starting on line 95.  This code is generating a Guile script
that will be used by guix-daemon to build an Emacs package.  The
"emacs-build" referenced within is actually the procedure found in
(guix build emacs-build-system).

See section of the Guile manual:
