Haskell program build and run using Cabal

I am trying to build a Haskell program from source and run it.  I am
using Cabal a Haskell build tool to do this.  I am able to build and run
this program without the following error messages on other Linux
operating systems.

`cabal --version` outputs:
cabal-install version
compiled using version of the Cabal library

I have installed GHC a Haskell compiler.  When I run `ghc --version` it
The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 8.6.5

When I run `cabal new-build` it outputs:
cabal: Use of GHC's environment variable GHC_PACKAGE_PATH is incompatible with 
Cabal. Use the flag --package-db to specify a package database (it can be used 
multiple times).

After running `unset GHC_PACKAGE_PATH` I can build the program with
`cabal new-build`.  `unset GHC_PACKAGE_PATH` does not persist across
different terminal emulator instances.

Then when I try to run the program using `cabal new-run` I get this
error message:
error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object 
file: No such file or directory

I added `gmp` to my system configuration and reconfigured the system.
However the error persists.

The command `locate` shows that is in the

Doing an internet search for this error message shows people dealing
with it by setting environment variables.

With Cabal's `new-build` and `new-run` commands I am running into issues
with environment variables.  Are environment variables managed in Guix
system configurations?  I searched the Guix manual for the search term
"environment variable" and did not see a prominent section on
environment variables.  That leads me to guess that in Guix environment
variables are left to configuration files in the users home directory.
