Can't configure guix, no guile-sqlite3

I wanted to add a package, test it and send in a patch. The docs are not quite as clear as they should be on the right steps to take, but since helpful and knowledgable people are never far on #guix, it became clear that it should be (I hope):

git clone
cd guix
*add package definition, commit right here, or maybe later*
guix environment guix
./configure --localstatedir=/var
./pre-inst-env guix package -i *new-package*

configure fails with:
checking whether Guile-Sqlite3 is available and recent enough... no

It does so even within `guix environment guix --ad-hoc guile-sqlite3`
I'm aware of recent discussions regarding `./pre-inst-env guix system`. My understanding is that with a recent version, `guix environment guix` should be sufficient.

$: which guix => /home/thorwil/.config/guix/current/bin/guix

$: guix pull -l

    guix b4eae99
      repository URL:
      branch: origin/master
      commit: b4eae997fe5b928f179c34d281e9f2c3eccd3670

I also did `git pull` today, so both the installed guix and the local tree are current.

What am I missing? Any ideas on further diagnosis?
