Allow ~ through unescaped

This seems fine. ~ is a shell special character (home directory) when it's the leading character of a word. People can always escape it in the .pc file if they have that situation, though.

Patch looks good. I'll apply it soon.

Applied in 69beecd after resolving a conflict in check/Makefile.am and making the name in tilde.pc more specific than "test". Thanks for the patch.
