Having received a little advice from an XDG type.  I think that the 
above is probably the way to go at least for now.

This means, and it was suggested, that we add this to the configure 
script's parameters:


so that for KDE I could set it to:


It is not sufficient to use: "--sysconfdir=DIR" since this only changes 
the location of: "etc" and it is ONLY the xdg stuff that we want to 
install in a DeskTop specific directory.

It would be best if KDE then used the "xdgdir" as the default location 
for xdg.

Perhaps using: "xdg.kde3" should be the default.
