Oh, I see. I am not quite familiar with KDE and KDE hier, so I got
confused. BTW, it's strange that GNOME uses ${X11BASE}, but KDE uses
${PREFIX} (which is usually ${LOCALBASE}), given they are both desktop
environments. Also, I think that FreeDesktop stuff was intended to be
common for all desktops. But now I am talking beyond my competence and
off the topic.
