Bootstrapping Guix on HPC without Root

I have been attempting to install Guix on the University of Washington's
HPC using a modified bootstrapping script based on

Unfortunately, after fighting through dependency hell and reaching the
configure step, I've hit another wall that seems to be new territory.

Our build server does not have network access, so when I try to `make`
this is spit out:

$ make

I am wondering if there is a way to pre-download this (and any other)
requirements before make is run?

Perhaps there is a way to run the download stages of the build script
while on our login node and then switch over to compile on the build

Maybe there's another solution that I'm not seeing.

Any assistance or direction would be greatly appreciated!
