 Values that represent an amount are in the usual amount syntax:
 ``CURRENCY:VALUE.FRACTION``, e.g. ``EUR:1.50``.
 The ``FRACTION`` portion may extend up to 8 places.
+The “[PATHS]” section is special in that it contains paths that can be
+referenced using “$” in other configuration values that specify
+*filenames*. Note that configuration options that are not specifically
+retrieved by the application as *filenames* will not see “$”-expressions
+expanded. To expand “$”-expressions when using ``taler-config``, you must pass
+the ``-f`` command-line option.
+The system automatically pre-populates the “[PATHS]” section with a few values
+at run-time in addition to the values that are in the actual configuration
+file.  These automatically generated values refer to installation properties
+from `GNU autoconf
+<>`_. The
+values are usually dependent on an ``INSTALL_PREFIX`` which is determined by
+the ``--prefix`` option given to configure.  The canonical values are:
+  * LIBEXECDIR = $INSTALL_PREFIX/taler/libexec/
+  * DOCDIR = $INSTALL_PREFIX/share/doc/taler/
+  * ICONDIR = $INSTALL_PREFIX/share/icons/
+  * LOCALEDIR = $INSTALL_PREFIX/share/locale/
+  * LIBDIR = $INSTALL_PREFIX/lib/taler/
+  * DATADIR = $INSTALL_PREFIX/share/taler/
+Note that on some platforms, the given paths may differ depending
+on how the system was compiled or installed, the above are just the
+canonical locations of the various resources.
