bug#50103: Pulseaudio doesn't export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS

A minor bug: I think Pulseaudio should have XDG_CONFIG_DIRS as an exported 
search path, as it includes a desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart. This would be 
used by e.g. starting just a window manager and using something like dex to run 
autostart programs. Of course there are other ways to do this, but especially 
if pulseaudio is not in the default user or system profile then XDG_CONFIG_DIRS 
will not include pulseaudio.

Are there any downsides to including XDG_CONFIG_DIRS in the pulseaudio package? 
I haven't run across any other packages falling into this case as well, but I 
wouldn't be surprised for anything that supplies an autostart .desktop file.
