bug#39536: problem in emacs-gnuplot mode

Dear list,

Currently the emacs-gnuplot installs its el files and associated
autoload file within the

${GUIX_PROFILE}/share/emacs/site-lisp/guix.d/gnuplot-0.7.0/ directory.

This makes it impossible to actually use gnuplot-mode unless you fiddle
with the EMACSLOADPATH to include the above directory.

I quite like the idea of installing the packages within
guix.d/${PACKAGE}; however this pattern does not seem to be actually
successfully used. I've looked at magit-forge, for instance, which seems
to (mistakenly) put .elc files within guix.d/forge-0.1.0-2.63cbf81/ --
but I doubt these are actually being used.

The guix.d/${PACKAGE} pattern also seems used on emacs-magit *input*
while compiling for accessing, for instance, input emacs-dash packages
(as far as I can tell these flags-settings are completely useless, by
the way, because the emacs-dash an other packages do not drop their
files in those directories).

I don't know scheme at all so I may be missing something. Please provide
guidance as to how to handle this; in the meantime i'm contributing the
following tentative patch which fixes my first problem with emacs-gnuplot.

I also stand ready to improve emacs-magit compilation flags if required.

Kind regards,
