Comment (by dnicholson at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Replying to [comment:7 alexander at linuxfromscratch.org]:
 > I take my last comment back. In
 sysconfdir is passed to every subpackage. Maybe we just want to do this in
 the book.

 Yes, I think we should. There's absolutely no harm in doing it, and it
 doesn't break the packages up into groups.

 > OTOH, is it possible to build KDE and GNOME in such a way that, when
 installing with the /usr prefix, the XDG_* variables in the environment
 become unneeded?

 I don't know for sure. For GNOME, installing into /usr everything goes to
 the right place and you don't have to set any variables. I haven't
 investigated KDE yet. For XFCE, I think it puts stuff in /etc/xfce4/xdg,
 which would break on GNOME. Can anyone confirm that?
