I think you mean inkscape is pulled when you build the system.  Then you
will not find it like this.  It is needed to build the fancy grub image,
and it is "pulled" by the system building code (specifically by
'svg->png' procedure in (gnu system grub) module).  If you want to avoid
it, you can specify an "empty" theme for example:

  (bootloader (grub-configuration (device "/dev/sda")
                                  (theme (grub-theme))))
