[SLUG] Using $HOME inside Makefile

Hi all,

Can't seem to get this right. I have a Makefile with:

        cp backup $HOME/bin
        @echo 'Setting executable status...'
        chmod 750 $HOME/bin/backup

make install is trying to do this:
cp backup OME/bin

I also tried ~/bin instead of $HOME/bin but it can't use the
~ also.

I don't want to use /home/mikel/bin as then the Makefile is
not generic.
Whats the really simple stuff I have forgotten. (man make
says nothing about using environment vars inside Makefile)
