There is no point to use such modules in a package module.
'copy-recursively' is needed only at the build time.  Don't forget that
the value of 'arguments' field is a *quoted* expression.  You can write
anything there, and the package module will still be compiled
successfully (it could fail only during the build).

(guix build utils) also shouldn't be explicitly specified inside
'arguments', as it is already used by gnu-build-system - see
%gnu-build-system-modules in (guix build-system gnu).
