Also, you may want to add this setting globally and permanently, so you don't have to specify it every time you run guix.  You can do this by passing the option to the guix daemon

 - when using guix on another distribution with systemd, you can modify the the ExecStart line in /etc/systemd/system/guix-daemon.service as follows:

ExecStart=/var/guix/profiles/per-user/root/guix-profile/bin/guix-daemon --build-users-group=guixbuild "--substitute-urls=";

Shouldn't that be:
ExecStart=/var/guix/profiles/per-user/root/guix-profile/bin/guix-daemon --build-users-group=guixbuild --substitute-urls="";

By the way: when revisiting this issue, I found the manual a bit confusing.  You'll find all the information you need when you read the entire section on substitutes from front to back, but when you just try to find specific information using the headlines, it's a bit confusing. For example, to learn about --substitute-urls and the daemon settings for other substitute servers, you'll need to read "Official Substitute Server", which you might not do when looking to add another server.  The subtitle for "Substitute Server Authorization" says "How to enable or disable substitutes", but doesn't give all the information you need to enable another substitute server.

If people here agree, I'd be happy to send a documentation patch.

For whatever it may be worth, when I first read about, I wondered if it could/should be used additionally, looked at the documentation, found it confusing and then forgot about the issue.
