[pkg-go] Bug#801595: Bug#801595: ratt calls sbuild in a way that uses the user's sbuildrc

I’m a bit hesitant to do this. If a user specified custom settings in their
~/.sbuildrc, they are probably there for a reason and should be considered
when using ratt, right?

What speaks against asking users to set SBUILD_CONFIG= when invoking ratt?
Currently, that’d be my preferred route.
