Suppose a port is built on the buildbot. The user is 'buildbot' and so the

During testing I didn't thoroughly checked that env var there. I suppose, it
could be deleted or set to nil and left to the user to set it himself. As I
said, I wrote the port for me, and uploaded it for others to test, as I
couldn't figure out a (better) way to set it in the startup item and didn't
find documentation on how macports would handle this case.
I don't think there is a good way to do it if the user's home directory
must be encoded into the plist. But I suspect that is not the case, and
Rainer has mentioned a good alternative in the ticket.
