I intended to use "$HOME" string literally since I did not come up
with a better solution. :-(

The original author used os.getenv() in python argparse, so the output
of `mini-buildd --help' really depend on $HOME env var. Unfortunately
the man page is generated using help2man (or similar tool) [1] during
building process and reproducible build website will alter $HOME env
var to test reproducibility. So in my opinion there is no better
option except fixed text string. Mini-buildd script won't and
shouldn't detect if itself is running for help2man or for end-user.
