Shell patterns are subject to tilde expansion. So the case statement
in the filexp script (written out by Configure) for expanding ~ and
~/*  has never worked. It's always been relying on the /bin/csh glob
for the ~* case. Few people ever noticed because one has to be
building to one's home directory on a system with no csh installed.
This is a bug from Perl 1.0's Configure!
