That is a very complete list of things to do :)

That should be --localstatedir=/var

It should be enough to bootstrap, configure, and make check from the Git
checkout, and then this...

... should be enough to get you started. Although, you don't need to
create your own build log. It is made available with `guix build
--log-file`.  Making your own log is useful if you want to capture the
log of a failing build.

If you don't have all the dependencies you need to `make` Guix, do `guix
environment guix` to add the dependencies of Guix to your environment.

> $ ./pre-inst-env guix lint hello

Please do this before sending the patch to guix-devel ;)
