XDG support is naïve

Bug #1783760 reported by John Drinkwater

Bug Description

The FreeDesktop spec offers the user to custom set the directories used for the locations, having ~/.config/ as a hardcoded path makes a further item in my home dir.

john@joran ~/code/anoise-branches/xdg-support ❯ export | grep XDG_.*_HOME
declare -x XDG_CACHE_HOME="/home/john/settings/cache"
declare -x XDG_CONFIG_HOME="/home/john/settings/config"
declare -x XDG_DATA_HOME="/home/john/settings/data"

Similarly, being able to put new sounds into my ~/settings/data/anoise dir would be nice…

I have a patch for this, it adds a further dependency of the xdg package.
