The problem is that autoconf is inserting something from
your environment into the replacement string for "@install_sh@".
What shell are you using?  What version?

The problem value is set here:

> install_sh=${install_sh-"$am_aux_dir/install-sh"}

thus, "$am_aux_dir" is wrong:

> # expand $ac_aux_dir to an absolute path
> am_aux_dir=`CDPATH=:; cd $ac_aux_dir && pwd`

Yep.  That's the problem.  This convolution is trying
to expand the "~" in the directory name.  When the
"cd" command is invoked, your shell prints the current
directory to stdout (as a tilde name), then "pwd"
does the same.  You will find this around line 1380.
Change it to this:

> # expand $ac_aux_dir to an absolute path
> am_aux_dir=`unset CDPATH || CDPATH=:; cd $ac_aux_dir && pwd`

and "cd" should stop printing the current directory.
(I generally have PS1 contain '$PWD' and use macros
to jump around.  That way, current directory always
prints and the ``foo=$(cd mumble ; pwd)'' constructs work.)
Anyways, it _is_ an autoconf bug because autoconf should
be accommodating your shell.
