I don't know, but I'd start by reverting all changes to path.c (even
though they date back to much older jumbos) - just pick path.c from
clean 1.7.9 and try to build jumbo with that - and see if the problem is
still there or not.  Can you or someone else try this?

jumbo's path.c adds path_expand_ex(), which is used by config.c -
I guess you can patch config.c to use path_expand() for this test (it'd
be a one-line edit there).  This shouldn't be relevant to the problem
you're seeing, it's just to get the code to compile with older path.c.
