scandepds.pl contains the following two lines:

    my $privPath = "$Config::Config{privlib}/$key";
    my $archPath = "$Config::Config{archlib}/$key";

'privlib' and 'archlib' both contain unexpanded paths (which may have a
tilde in them), when I think using the expanded path would be less
likely to cause a problem. 

There are corresponding keys for this named 'privlibexp/ and 'archlibexp'.
