Hmmm, thanks ;-)

Perhaps one could set the installation of nss-certs as:

1. A dependency to git, and
2. To print out the environment variable export GTI_SSL_CAPATH once
nss-certs is installed.

I have seen packages such as gtk3 on guix trigger similar variables to
be set when they are installed and loaded from a specific guix
profile, as such:

guix package -p ~/some-profile -i -some-gtk3-app

And then this would be recommended when calling up guix package -p
~/some-profile --search-paths

Taken from the email above as an example:

export XDG_DATA_DIRS="/home/lin/opt/guix-build-system/share"
export GUIX_GTK3_PATH="/home/lin/opt/guix-build-system/lib/gtk-3.0"

So yeah, it can be done ;-)
