``make install'' installs just $(prefix)/bin/XaraLX

It works under FreeBSD if configure is run with
But this is imperfect and quite ugly.

I think that the desktop file must be installed in
it will work on FreeBSD where it will resolve as
/usr/X11R6/share/applications by default and maybe on Debian - I noticed
a lot of .desktop files in /usr/share/applications/ on the nearby Debian
