bug#49353: INFOPATH and MANPATH not set in profiles

MANPATH is set by the man-db package, and /etc/profile.

INFOPATH is set by the emacs package, the texinfo package, and

/etc/profile sets the variables as such:

This means if I use multiple profiles, and I don't have `(and man-db (or
emacs texinfo))` in each profile, then I can't access the info and man
files using the info and man commands.

For example:

Fails to find man page
guix environment --ad-hoc neovim
man nvim

Finds man page just fine
guix environment --ad-hoc man-db neovim
man nvim
