Sorry, I missed that.
I'm not a shell expert (I must read the manuals to do anything), but
you could do:
Right, this one seems ok.
I thought about another advantage that tilde expansion performed by
scsh could have: if we say that users can have their own package tree,
then configure's default value for --with-lib-dirs-list could be
and it would work for all users. But there might be other ways of
achieving something similar.
Yes, for me version 1.2.3 is smaller than 1.20.3 (since the first
components of the two versions are equal, but the second are 2 and 20,
respectively, which means that the first is smaller). Do you think it
should be otherwise?
I agree that 1.2.3 is a smaller version than 1.20.3. I don't know if
1.2.3 is lexicographically smaller than 1.20.3. I guess it seems to be

Ah, sorry, there's a misunderstanding about what versions are. When I
talk about a version, I mean an ordered sequence of integers. A string
like "1.2.3" is *not* a version, but the *printed representation* of
the version composed of the integer 1 followed by the integer 2,
followed by the integer 3. When I say that these versions are ordered
lexicographically, I mean that we compare these sequences of integers
lexicographically, not their string representation. See for example:
