Sorry. I’m feeling a little stupid. GSettings checks each entry in
XDG_DATA_DIRS for a gschemas.compiled file, so compiling the settings
for each package individually does work. The issue with the app I was
trying to run was elsewhere.

Now, all GSettings could still be compiled in a profile hook to a
single gschemas.compiled file to eliminate the annoying warning message
about “arbitrarily choosing” one of them. I have seen an mlet for the
first time today, so I’m not going to fix this. I’m also not sure if
this is really better than what (guix build glib-or-gtk-build-system)

I’m also not going to file a bug since I’m not sure if we even want to
change the current method.
