I think you can do something like:

  (define dot-config
    (compute-file "dot-config-skeleton"
                      (mkdir #$output)
                      (mkdir (string-append #$output "/guix"))

and then add it in the list of skeletons like so:

    (".config" ,dot-config))

Does that make sense?
