When I'm defining a new emacs package, emacs-build-system:build takes
care of updating the load path to include directories for emacs packages
in the inputs, but it relies on emacs-packages?, which relies on the
"emacs-" prefix, to do this.  So, if I'm defining a package that depends
on Magit, I need to manually set load-path in the build phase.
