As the directory of the "out" output will have a shorter name, you could
sort the names by size and take the first one:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
for name in $(guix build coreutils); do printf "%d\t%s\n" "${#name}" "${name}"; 
done | sort -n | head -n 1 | cut -f 2
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
