Nice catch! Thanks. Disabled tests when tweaking builds and forgot to remove.

Just existence. Thanks for the pointer. Changed.

Hi,

Double bracketing is pointless, use it only when needed.

Vername sounds a little weird, make that version-base or something
clearer.  Also, the argument #:commit is used in an unclear fashion --
if you were to pass an actual commit hash to it, it'd still be treated
as a release and not be using git-version. 

On a related note
> +(define (jversion->string version revision)
> +  "Return a string representation of a J version and (optional)

should also take commit and revision should probably be dashed.  In
that way, when packaging commits between releases we can use
"jrevision.guix-revision" as the complete revision.

In short, I'd add a #:tag argument to override the tag and treat commit
like a let-bound commit.

It's nice that you annotated all those, but note that it probably
wouldn't have been needed.  If you notice this list getting longer and
longer as you update, consider dropping the #:selects.

Maxime already made a comment w.r.t. 32bit AVX here, but I think this
would be a prime example to use the CPU tuning that was recently
landed.  

Most of the above (except the semantics of the make-j keyword
arguments) are not blockers in my opinion.

Cheers
