That works, but I cannot find what I'm searching for: libressl, that
I can see with (in a current git checkout) :

$ git grep libressl
doc/guix.texi:(define libressl-instead-of-openssl
doc/guix.texi:  (package-input-rewriting `((,openssl . ,libressl))))
doc/guix.texi:(define git-with-libressl
doc/guix.texi:  (libressl-instead-of-openssl git))
doc/guix.texi:with @var{libressl}.  Then we use it to define a
@dfn{variant} of the
doc/guix.texi:@var{git} package that uses @var{libressl} instead of

What am I missing ?
Or maybe I'm very bad at info, always found its interface weird...

I don't have guix installed on this system, see below:

$ make doc/guix.html
make: *** No rule to make target `doc/guix.html'.  Stop.

The configure script is not working here (ubuntu 14.04) bare git
checkout, see below...

$ git status
On branch master
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.

nothing to commit, working directory clean
$ ./configure --localstatedir=/var
configure: error: cannot find install-sh,, or shtool in
build-aux "."/build-aux
