Comment (by guest):

 Well, autoconf would not let me down like that, since it uses a the
 install.sh program which passes the path verbatim to the shell.  I have
 little experience with any other installation tools. Hence this behaviour
 was new to me. For me, the 'standard behaviour' is that ~ is expanded to
 my home directory. Close it if you disagree that not expanding ~ is
 standard behaviour.
