This may be related to the fact that the unix shell only expands leading
tildes. compare the results of:

echo ~
echo ~/blahblah
echo --prefix=~

I figured that you can safely write $HOME instead of ~ and it works
perfectly, because then, it gets replaced by a real name _before_ running
./configure, instead of _during_.
