Hi Léo,

I've committed this, with minor changes, as

A few days ago, I tested your patch (applied to
19783b9f553e433743fd695302df8cac4ec91ae1, which at the time was the
latest commit on master).  Unfortunately, it caused git-minimal to fail
to build:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
./pre-inst-env guix build git

The same command (./pre-inst-env guix build git) succeeded on commit

The problem was that git-minimal inherits the arguments (thus the
phases) from git, so it needs to also delete the newly added phase:

  (delete 'build-subtree)
  (delete 'split)
  (delete 'install-man-pages)
  (delete 'install-subtree)
  (delete 'install-credential-netrc)
  (delete 'install-credential-libsecret)

I also took the liberty of adding #t at the end of the new phase.  My
understanding is that all successful phases should still be returning
#t, as described below, so please take care to always return #t at the
end of every phase:

Thank you for the contribution!  I hope it streamlines your workflow!
