    gnu: elixir: Don't fix Git executable location during Elixir build.
    The removed code below affected two locations where Elixir uses Git:
    * At build-time, Git is used to see if the build is inside a Git repo and 
if so, git info
      is added to the build information that Elixir returns with 
`System.build_info()`. The code
      uses PATH + `git` so the Git version from the inputs is used which is 
just fine.
    * At run-time, Git is used by Mix if, and only if, there are any Git-based 
dependencies. This
      is not the normal case, and in that sense Git is an optional dependency 
of Elixir - most
      projects will work just fine without Git being present. Here, too, PATH + 
`git` is used
      so if there is a need on a user's system to use Git-based dependencies, 
the user can just
      add the package to the profile and things will just work.
    I feel that leaving this alone is cleaner than trying to fix the dependency 
(if we want to
    keep it, it needs to be in propagated-inputs in order to keep Git around; I 
stumbled upon
    this building a project with Git dependencies after doing a `guix gc`. 
However, given that
    using Git dependencies is the exception and I think that minimizing 
dependencies is nicer
    I opted to just remove the substition completely).
    * gnu/packages/elixir.scm (elixir)[arguments]: In 'replace-paths' phase,
    remove substitutions of "git".
