This is good, but really, gnomehier should not be used directly by
non-Desktop modules.  I think you want gnomeprefix.  So:

.if ${HAVE_GNOME:Mgnomehier}!=""
USE_GNOME+=	gnomeprefix

gnomeprefix does other magical things to ensure DATADIR is properly set.
That said, you can certainly add desktop files to share/applications,
and GNOME (and KDE) will pick them up.  In that case, you don't need any
fnacy GNOME detection at all.  Just be sure to conditionally remove
