I did a full install for a bare-bones-like system with ‘nss-certs’
selected during the install.  The resulting system has only ‘guix’ and
‘herd’ as useful commands in /run/current-system/profile/bin.

You can log in but Coreutils commands etc. are missing.  You can run:

  guix install coreutils grep sed findutils

which solves the problem.

It’s a serious issue nonetheless.  :-/
