I've compiled gimp-1.2.5 with success using the configure option
However, when I try to start I face a rather bizarre message
 For a proper GIMP installation, a subdiretcory named
 $HOME/~/foo needs to be created.

This appeared wrong to me, but out of curiosity I did the favor
and created a directory called ~ (tilde) in $HOME.
GIMP started, but as I expected complained about a missing directory

The other way around, creating a $HOME/$HOME/foo
in the first place, doesn't work either.

I'm afraid I'm stuck in a vicious circle.
Does anybody know, where my initial mistake may be.
