I think that the Guix toolchain (the one used in package builds) should
stay the same (no debuginfod support), and that we should add
debuginfod-enabled variants that gets included when users install
'binutils' or 'gcc-toolchain' manually.  How does that sound?

So our only concern will be how to use Elfutils' for GCC,
which should be straightforward with an "elfutils-minimal" variant that
does not pull in the debuginfo dependencies.
