--include requires absolute paths

Should we say explicitly in the doc that -I or --include option requires absolute path(s)?
Paragraph to be modified is in Usage 1.2:

-I, --include=directory

   Add directory to the search path for input files.

Multiple -I options may be given. The search will start in the first defined directory, and if the file to be included is not found the search will continue in subsequent directories.

Perhaps a warning like "~ cannot be used, use absolute path" may be also helpful.
