    A simple config change for this year's release!?

Are we sure ~ gets expanded right on Windows?

Overall, I don't feel compelled to make a change at the last second to
fix this, although I have no real objection.  I doubt TeX is the only
program that fails when HOME has a trailing /.  (I know it's used for
ftp-only configurations, but ftp-only configurations can't run any
commands to get confused. :)

Couple minor doc things just in, so the present rebuild is not the
last.  Didn't really think it would be :).
