I would find really useful if Guix was providing a tool similar to what
‘dnf whatprovides’ or ‘apt-file’ does.  I mean something to check what
packages provides a particular file (executable/manual/library).

My main use-case is when running a ‘configure’ script which checks an
arbitrary program, I would like ‘guix whereis’ to help me find out what
package I need to install to satisfy its configuration requirement.
