 I think I know the issue and why this doesn't hit LiveCD.

 If XDG_CONFIG_DIRS is set, libxfce4util will add ${sysconfdir}/xdg to that
 path. However, we don't pass --sysconfdir=/etc to libxfce4util in the
 book. On the LiveCD, a config.site file is used which always passes
 --sysconfdir=/etc, correct?

 Luca, will you try rebuilding libxfce4util with --sysconfdir=/etc? Also,
 when you set XDG_DATA_DIRS and XDG_CONFIG_DIRS, you have to add in the
 default directories (I just found this out, it's in the basedir spec).

 So, in your profile settings, you should do

 export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS=/other/directory:${XDG_CONFIG_DIRS-/etc/xdg}

 I'll open a separate bug about that.
