Unfortunately Guix doesn't.

Instead you could use ‘(inputs …)’ and ‘(native-inputs …)’ which will
not be installed to a user's profile but available in build phases.

‘(package (description #;…) #;…)’ is not a good place to list and track
dependencies, because a package could include more or less in future.
