Hello,
I'm trying to install gold linker using guix.
I noticed there is a package in `(gnu packages base)` called
"binutils-gold". However, it doesn't come up on the search via `guix search
binutils-gold` and I'm unable to install it.

Why is this?
How can I install gold linker using guix?

This is because the regular binutils package was recently 'hidden' due
to an upstream bug, and 'binutils-gold' accidentally inherited the
'hidden?' property.

I fixed the inheritance in 4a13050b877f9058414f4b7633e423726e9bbb32, so
you should be able to install it (again) after a 'guix pull'.

Thanks for reporting the issue!  :-)
