Comment (by dnicholson at linuxfromscratch.org):

 I think the safest thing to do right now is to change the blurbs in the
 various "Configuring" sections to say something like

 {{{
 If you installed desktop X, ensure that the menu hierarchy is created
 correctly by adding the following variables to the system-wide profile or
 your personal profile:

 export
 XDG_DATA_DIRS=$DESKTOP_PREFIX/share:${XDG_DATA_DIRS-/usr/local/share:/usr/share}
 export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS=/etc/$DESKTOP/xdg:${XDG_CONFIG_DIRS-/etc/xdg}

 See the [XDG Base Directory Specification http://standards.freedesktop.org
 /basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html]
 for more details.
 }}}

 Substituting $DESKTOP for GNOME, KDE, or XFCE. That way, things should
 always work, independent of how they've decided to implement the basedir
 spec. Except that for xfce, the second one wouldn't be needed since it
 puts it config files in /etc/xdg. But gnome and kde put them in
 /etc/gnome/xdg and /etc/kde/xdg, respectively.
