Hmm.  Where does that get set?  In the install or in the original make? 
 I was going to add kdm configuration to the book by just updating the 
PATH in .xsession as follows:

[LFS2 at lfs3 ~]# cat .xsession
# Begin .xinitrc file
export PATH
exec startkde
[LFS2 at lfs3 ~]#

That seems a little easier.  Are there any other advantages to the 
instruction above?
