When thinking more about it, I think that the right way to do that is
probably to make guix optional (by adding some --without-guix argument
to configure) and then to check for grep only if guix is disabled. 

The bonus here is that it would make it much easier for people to test
their patch if they don't already have guix or don't want to invest
time into installing it.
