I've never done anything other than a normal `guix pull`.  When I was
working on the `guix environment` changes for containers months ago, I
was using `pre-inst-env', but nothing other than that.  I didn't provide
any options to `configure' or anything change any other env vars.

Since before March, I've just been using a vanilla guix (rather than my
local git checkout).
