I'm still getting to grips with Guix, so a fairly basic question which
seems connected:  how do I execute a binary? So for instance, I can
download a precompiled binary for the kitty terminal app:

But when I try to execute it in Guix, I get the message:
"./kitty: No such file or directory"

I tried symlinking /bin/bash and /usr/bin/env, but this didn't help.

I'm sure something in the manual or this thread probably answers this,
but I often find I can generalise from concrete examples better than vice-versa.
