The menu system is in a state of transition right now to satisfy the new 
xdg-standard as defined on freedesktop.org.
1. Global menus after the new system are defined by XML files in 
$KDEDIR/etc/xdg/menus and use *.desktop files in $KDEDIR/share/applications.
2. Global menu-entries after the old system are in $KDEDIR/share/applnk.
3. Local (per user) entries are in $KDEHOME/share/applnk.
4. There are *.desktop files under $HOME/.local which are probably used for 
per-user settings after the new system (don't know exactly how).

All this is merged somehow by the kmenu code.

To copy the per-user settings to another user, it should be enough to copy 
$KDEHOME/share/applnk (normally $HOME/.kde/...) and $HOME/.local.
