Guix installation always hangs at some arbitrary point in tests stage

I've been trying to use yay to install the guix AUR package https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/guix/ for the past couple weeks, and each time the installation will hang indefinitely (at least for days if leave uninterrupted) at some arbitrary point in the tests stage.

for example my current installation attempt hangs at

==> Starting check()...
make  check-recursive

while last time it hangs after just the first few tests

PASS: tests/accounts.scm
PASS: tests/base16.scm
PASS: tests/base32.scm
PASS: tests/base64.scm
PASS: tests/bournish.scm

it seems each time the installation would hang after passing a different .scm file under tests, and it will stays there forever until I manually hit Control+C

Any idea what might be wrong and how to fix this issue? Thanks.

Please edit your post and use [ code ] tags (not quote tags) when posting output.

Does it fail if you use makepkg (not yay) ?
