I am quite suru folks who ask these questions do not compile dia
themselves but use binary installer.

I'm haven't done windows development in a while but...

IIRC there is a registry key that is quite close to the "home directory", at 
least on NT/2000/XP.  I forget the name of the key but it maps to 
%WINNT%\profiles\%CURRENT_USER% which is the NT home directory.  A good 

the %USERPROFILE% environment variable matches this registry key. We'll want
to avoid "My Documents", however. .diarc is not a document.

alternative might be to use the "My Documents" folder is defined on all Win32 
platforms IIRC (the name of that reg key escapes me as well,  but it wouldn't 
be to hard to track down).
