bug#21806: TeX Live: missing biber executable

I have been trying out the guix package manager on top of Debian
Jessie for a few weeks and I ran into a problem installing TeX
Live, namely with the bibtex replacement biber.

TeX Live installs fine, and all the executables are available in
my user profile, except for biber. I digged a bit, and it seems
that while biber is included in the TeX Live texmf-dist tree, it
is not under share/texmf-dist/scripts but
share/texmf-dist/source/bibtex/biber, in a compressed tarball
biblatex-biber.tar.gz, from which biblatex-biber-1.8 can be
extracted. From this directory, I was able to run the perl build
and install tools.
