Could probably create a profile somewhere and source that from the
default profile scripts or maybe the PAM environment scripts.

Something like:
$ guix package --profile=/var/guix-base-profile 

And add a line like this wherever the environment is set up, which I'm
honestly not sure where it is:
GUIX_PROFILE=/var/guix-base-profile source /var/guix-base-profile

It's important that the variable assignment is on the same line as the
call to source.
Alternatively you could write 
export GUIX_PROFILE=/var/guix-base-profile

which sets GUIX_PROFILE as a side effect, which might cause problems.
