Good to know!

Should we patch Emacs or something so that it works by default?

IIRC Tramp invokes ‘getconf PATH’ on the remote machine, which is
totally useless on GuixSD and hardly fixable:

  $ getconf PATH

(For the record, it returns the value of libc’s ‘_PATH_DEFPATH’
constant, which doesn’t make much sense on non-FHS systems.)
