ruby-graphviz has this in d/rules:

G_HOME was a Debian-specific workaround for old versions of GLib not
respecting HOME. Since GLib 2.36, GLib functions that look for the home
directory *do* respect HOME. GLib >= 2.36 is available in oldstable, so
I'd like to remove the G_HOME hack now.

Please investigate whether this is still needed, and if it is, set HOME=/
instead.

Thanks,
