I don’t think anything has changed, maybe it’s just that your profile
now includes ‘ssl/certs’?

On my GuixSD machine, I still have:

  $ env |grep GIT_

but that’s because ~/.guix-profile does not contain certificates.

At any rate, you are right that GIT_SSL_CAINFO should be a single file.
There’s a note in the code:

    ;; For HTTPS access, Git needs a single-file certificate bundle, specified
    ;; with $GIT_SSL_CAINFO.
    ;; FIXME: This variable designates a single file; it is not a search path.
    (list (search-path-specification
           (variable "GIT_SSL_CAINFO")
           (file-type 'regular)
           (files '("etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt")))))

So we’re abusing the search path mechanism here.

A proper fix might be to add an option in ‘search-path-specification’ to
pick only the first match.
