Hello,

I would find really useful if Guix was providing a tool similar to what
=E2=80=98dnf whatprovides=E2=80=99 or =E2=80=98apt-file=E2=80=99 does.  I m=
ean something to check what
packages provides a particular file (executable/manual/library).

My main use-case is when running a =E2=80=98configure=E2=80=99 script which=
 checks an
arbitrary program, I would like =E2=80=98guix whereis=E2=80=99 to help me f=
ind out what
package I need to install to satisfy its configuration requirement.
