As a distro you might want to set them in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/ or 

You don't need to set KDEHOME if you are OK with built-in patch ($HOME/.kde, 
see kde4-config --localprefix)

Same for KDEDIRS, you only need to set this if you want to add additional 
search paths.
See kde4-config --path <type>
e.g. kde4-config --path data
