What do you think of defining the <search-path-specification>
$XDG_CONFIG_DIR in (guix search-paths) itself, next to $PATH?  That seems
unlikely to lead to recursive errors.

Alternatively, I would guess that making 'search-paths' and
'native-search-paths' a ‘thunked’ field would resolve the errors,
at cost of making <package> objects use a bit more memory.
