I have no time to look into the code but after your reminder I did.
I found that preparation of paths for configuration files is in
cfgreader.c:get_locations() function in gnokii library.
It looks that gnokii uses following paths for configuration:
$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/gnokii/config (/etc/xdg)

If you don't set any variable the list of paths should looks like:

Then in function gn_cfg_read_default is following code:

        config_file_locations = get_locations(&num);

        for (i = 0; i < num && error != GN_ERR_NONE; i++) {
                error = gn_cfg_file_read(config_file_locations[i]);

So smsd should go thru the list of paths while it find the first working
path. Maybe it should be better to check result of getenv()
in get_locations() and don't use result if getenv() returns NULL, but I
think it should work anyway. 

Now I don't understand you description because according code it should work
without HOME variable if you have /etc/gnokiirc.
Can you send me console output without HOME variable set?

If you need to specify non-default config file for smsd you can use -C
(--config) option.
