[bug#42882] [PATCH] system: Modify GDB skeleton to find debug files for

From: Maxim Cournoyer
Subject: [bug#42882] [PATCH] system: Modify GDB skeleton to find debug files for any profile.
Date: Sun, 16 Aug 2020 01:39:47 -0400

Instead of hard coding the debug directory to that of the user profile, use
Guile scripting to derive the debug file directories from the LIBRARY_PATH
environment variable.

* gnu/system/shadow.scm (default-skeletons)[gdbinit]: Derive the value of
DEBUG-FILE-DIRECTORY via the environment variable LIBRARY_PATH, so that debug
files from any profile can be found.
* doc/guix.texi (Installing Debugging Files): Document it.

 In addition, you will most likely want GDB to be able to show the source
 code being debugged.  To do that, you will have to unpack the source
 code of the package of interest (obtained with @code{guix build
