There’s no such rc file, but it would probably be a good idea.

As for custom package definitions, yes it’s possible to have them, with
the caveat that they cannot be referred to by name with the ‘guix’
commands.  Instead, you’d have to do, say:

  guix build -e '(@ (yagnesh packages) my-emacs)'

This looks up the ‘my-emacs’ variable in the (yagnesh packages) module,
which is assumed to be in Guile’s search path.
