It's not exactly the same problem because compared to the error you
got with AUCTeX 11.81 there is only one backslash before the ~1 and
not two.  But this still is one too much.

Can anybody tell me why we are quoting ~ anyway?  The bash I am having
here handles ~ inside strings quite nicely (no expansion).  Are there
other shells which fail on such things?

Well, that doesn't help if the installation routine cannot handle ~ in
paths correctly.
