more menuitem voodoo

I found that when I ran setup on my gentoo box, I couldn't get KDE menuitems
to show up when I ran the installer as myself or as root.
For my user, the problem was that some other installer (looks like openoffice)
had created a ~/.kde2 directory, which setup was using for the menuitems.
But, my version of kde (3.1.1) only looks in ~/.kde, not ~/.kde2. So I
changed setup to look for .kde first, then kde2 and kde3
For root, the problem was the /usr/share/gnome/apps in the RedHat
configuration. This directory exists on my system, so setup put the
menuitems in there (and then did not install any more items, since a
successful redhat is supposed to take care of everything). So naturally this
didn't show up on my KDE menu. I fixed this by removing
/usr/share/gnome/apps from redhat (its is also in the Gnome configuration, so
that should take care of it in non-redhat cases).
Attached is a patch which fixes these problems for me. Really hope that
someday everybody uses one desktop menuitem convention (or even a few
_standard_ conventions). Ha.
