Now that I have looked into it, there are other variables that haven't been 
defined as well that I had to define in my .profile file:

export GUIX_LOCPATH="$GUIX_PROFILE/lib/locale"
export INFOPATH="$HOME/.config/guix/current/share/info:$INFOPATH"
export CPATH="$HOME/.guix-profile/include/":$CPATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$HOME/.guix-profile/lib/":$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
# SSL certificates (after installing 'nss-certs')
export SSL_CERT_DIR="$GUIX_PROFILE/etc/ssl/certs"
export SSL_CERT_FILE="$GUIX_PROFILE/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt"

I don't know if all of these should have been defined by Guix, but I have 
listed them anyway. I could live with $XDG_DATA_DIRS not always being up to 
date, but now I noticed that `guix environment --ad-hoc whatever` does not 
make C libraries available for working on local projects because $CPATH AND 
$LD_LIBRARY_PATH are not set.
