Try the “pandoc” package instead.  There are now two packages:
“ghc-pandoc” for the regular old shared library thing and “pandoc” for
this static linking abomination.

(Similarly for “ghc-pandoc-citeproc” and “pandoc-citeproc”.)

I should note that it doesn’t help with one case I had in mind: “guix
pack” still includes way too much, unfortunately, so there is no impact
on application bundle size yet.
