$KDEHOME should point to your .kde home directory where your _user_ 
configuration is stored. Eg. it is /home/zsolt/.kde3 at me. If it is not set 
then ~/.kde is assumed.

I dont know how we came to /usr and /opt. The wineshelllink script currently 
only copies to the user folder (to ~/.kde and ~/.kde2 in the case of kde).

I'm proposing to use $KDEHOME instead of ~/.kde if it is set. That would solve 
Of course if the user has two or more kde user folders, then it would not copy 
to all of them, but that should happen only in the case of a kde developer, 
and then he do something about it (editing wineshelllink if he must).
