GUIX_LOCPATH in daemon unit file

Hi Guix,

using Guix on Ubuntu, I kept seeing messages “substitute: warning: failed to install locale: Invalid argument” (though apart from this warning, everything seemed to work normally).

From a previous thread on this mailing list, I learnt that the problem is that the daemon doesn't have GUIX_LOCPATH set correctly, but I didn't know how to fix this. #guix explained to me that, for systemd users, this can be done by adding "Environment=GUIX_LOCPATH=/root/.guix-profile/lib/locale" to the [Service] section of the guix-daemon.service file. (and probably also installing the necessary locales for root, which I'd already done).

Should this environment setting be added to the default guix-daemon.service, or could this break something for other users/distributions (I'm not sure systems other than Ubuntu have this problem?).
