Setting $HOME in the testsuite

More fallout from my issue #3765 work: I'm investing using ~/.svnrc to
provide default arguments to the commandline client. In doing so, it
makes loads of sense not to use the a developer's ~/.svnrc when
running the tests. Since this is found via the svn_user_get_homedir()
function, which uses the $HOME environment variable, we coud easily
redirect that to avoid this conflict. (It would also allow testing of
this feature.)

I know we provide a standard config directory in the testsuite, but
wouldn't it also be reasonable to create a dummy home directory?
Grepping through the python test suite yield no results for HOME, so I
assume we are currently using the developer's home directory.
