Could it be that ~/.guile on that machine imports (ice-9 readline)?
(On GuixSD the default ~/.guile used to import it unconditionally.)

Otherwise I see no reason why things would go wrong.  For instance, this
appears to work fine:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ ./pre-inst-env guix environment --ad-hoc guile -C -- guile --listen
