I downloaded Guix for USB disk from the Guix download page.
Then, when I did "guix system init /mnt/etc/config.scm /mnt" following the Guix info available at Alt+F2, I got an error suggesting me to use "--fallback" option.
I did that and my machine started to build sources. Then, I hit some error when building webkitgtk-2.12.0 and went to the Guix IRC channel. There two users told me that I should do "guix pull" first so that I do not have to build from source.
So, I think it is best to mention about "guix pull" in the Guix info page section 7.1.4.
BTW, I am capable of making patches. So, if you'd like me to make a patch, just tell me the source tree to make a diff against.
