I've already told you section 3.2.1. Additionally see how to change search
path using the users environment variables.

And you may determine TEXMFHOME using kpsewhich. And alternatively you may
simple set TEXMFHOME at your user environment. So that's not a problem at all.
I'm often use something like
TEXMFHOME=~/testtexmf/ pdftex foo
TEXMFHOME=~/testtexmf/ emacs foo
for testing of several TeX environments (e.\,g. having requests to out-dated
package releases) and never needed a patch of kpathsea to extend or change
