Isn't this exactly what the 'guix pull' age-of-checkout (or date-stamp) message
helps with?
I can't provide much help because I build from a git ahead of guix master, so I
really know what commit my guix was build from.
Technically the rolling release model, and guix pull (pulling 'master') should
avoid the necessity to point to a specific tarball. I can't suggest more with 
information provided.
