GUIX_PROFILE is not used by guix ittelf, it's only a convenience variable 
that's set just before sourcing said profile.

On a foreign distro, you'll find the code that loads your profile in 

On the guix system, it's /etc/profile directly.

In addition, you might have some code in ~/.profile or ~/.bash_profile.

As you can see, GUIX_PROFILE's value changes multiple times, which explains why 
multiple profiles are loaded in the environment.
