You may wish to try the instructions here. [1] Please make sure to
also have a look at this link (which is mentioned on that page, except
I gave you the 'devel' link for the latest version of the
documentation). [2]

In particular, you will want to run something like 'guix environment
guix' followed by './bootstrap' and './configure
--localstatedir=/var'. After a 'make' you can then issue commands like
'./pre-inst-env guix build guix' (or any other package from Git).

Hope that helps.

Kind regards
