I remember being bitten by this one, long ago.

I don't know which reporting mechanism would work better, but I
would prefer a configure script that would happily accept ~vpopmail.
I do not think that vpopmail ought to look up ~vpopmail at run-time
because of the overhead but I think it is reasonable for the
configure script to be a little smarter.

Although, having said that, I can see problems with making the configure
script smarter.  I can see people posting here saying that they
moved the vpopmail home directory and changed /etc/password and things
broke even though they used ~vpopmail in the configure rather than
a full path.

On balance, fixing the help is probably the best that can be done.
