Scratch that; using "~" is no good. I've pushed a fix to that line that you can use as inspiration if you like :)

I'm still confused about all the different ways mkluatexfontdb scans through directories and when.

Without $OSFONTDIR, the script searches through the static font locations recursively. But if you set $OSFONTDIR to those locations, it then searches through them non-recursively. I guess the biggest confusion is why scan_texmf_tree uses osdirs to search through non-texmf locations. And in doing so, what is the purposes of OSFONTDIR?
