Hi Guix,

I've installed gimp and gimp-resynthesizer into my profile. However, gimp 
does not know about resynthesizer. If I symlink 
~/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins to ~/.guix-profile/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins, 
then resynthesizer is found and works correctly. Presumably, our gimp 
package should look in the profile for plugins by default, but it is not 
clear how to do that.

Also, for me, starting gimp with GIMP2_PLUGINDIR set did not help gimp 
find resynthesizer. Even it that did work, it is not clear that we'd want 
that since it is a single directory and not a path.

My guix describe info is as follows:
