Yes, see below.

It’s now standalone.

It’s complaining because it wants /bin/sh to run ‘configure’, and that
file is missing from the build chroot by default.

For now, you’ll have to add /bin to the chroot by running

  guix-daemon ... --chroot-directory /bin

Make sure that /bin/sh is Bash, not something else.

Unfortunately, since /bin/sh is most likely dynamically linked on your
system, you’ll need to add /lib, /lib64, and similar directories to the
chroot as well.

We are trying to fix that in the ‘core-updates’ branch, as was discussed
a couple of weeks ago on this list.
