Just to prevent later trouble:

If you use the tilde, **do not quote the PATH**

(export PATH=~/.cabal/bin:$PATH works,
export PATH="~/.cabal/bin:$PATH" doesn't, because the tilde doesn't get 
expanded inside quotes)

If you use $HOME instead of the tilde or write out your home directory, it 
doesn't matter whether you enclose the PATH in quotes or not.
