I’d say no:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ guix size git | tail -1
total: 375.1 MiB
$ guix size git openssh | tail -1
total: 408.9 MiB
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The rationale is that SSH support is optional and can be dynamically
added, so it’s a case where dynamic lookups in $PATH are a good idea
