The “Building TeX Live” manual has a section about configure options for
distro builds¹. They mention this option:


    This isn’t technically required, but is strongly recommended, so your
    build and your distro can be distinguished from others.

Therefore add it to texlive-bin. This is how it appears on LuaTeX, for
example (it also shows up in other engines’ banners):

    $ luatex
    This is LuaTeX, Version 1.13.0 (TeX Live 2021/GNU Guix)
    restricted system commands enabled.

The other options mentioned in that section are already being used.

* gnu/packages/tex.scm (texlive-bin)[arguments]: Add ‘--with-banner-add’

This is something I saw on the TeX Live build manual after I sent the
TeX Live 2021 patches. I’m tracking it in a separate bug because it’s
orthogonal to whether the 2021 update is applied.

The patch applies cleanly both on core-updates and on top of the
TeX Live 2021 patches in bug 49408.

FWIW, Debian and Ubuntu also use this option:

$ luatex
This is LuaTeX, Version 1.12.0 (TeX Live 2020/Debian)
 restricted system commands enabled.
