Sourcing the profile would define XDG_DATA_DIRS, which is required for
font display.  Installing fonts and running fc-cache may have provided
fonts in ~/.guix-profile/share/fonts, which is part of XDG_DATA_DIRS.

This is a known issue (which I experience when running Icecat in a
container) that hopefully can be addressed by someone who knows a bit
more than me about the proper way to fix the problem. :)  It's a problem
for people on foreign distros.
