[bug#47661] [PATCH v2 03/33] gnu: emacs: Add coreutils and gzip to PATH.

From: Leo Prikler
Subject: [bug#47661] [PATCH v2 03/33] gnu: emacs: Add coreutils and gzip to PATH.
Date: Sat, 17 Apr 2021 19:06:18 +0200

Some parts of Emacs (dired, compression handling, Tramp) shell out to commands
and patching them all is a daunting task.  Also, w.r.t. Tramp, we need those
commands to be portable across multiple machines, which need not only be Guix
machines (and even if they are, store items can be different).  This patch
ensures a ‘sane’ setup FSVO ‘sane’.

* gnu/packages/emacs.scm (emacs)[wrap-load-path]: Rename to...
[wrap-emacs-paths] ... this.  Also patch PATH.
