* The solution

install man-db into your home profile

* The explanation

mandb -k and whatis use a database of cached info called index.something. 
multiple databases can be loaded and MANPATH can be used to find them.
index.db is only created if man-db is in profile. (guix/guix/profiles.scm, 
manual-database/optional procedure)
