dmenu is the only suckless software I know that does anything related
to the XDG basedir spec. I think the suckless way is to implement one
simple approach and let users patch in their favorite way.

A thread from 2010[1] suggests that many suckless users don't favor
the XDG approach. My setup has XDG_* variables, but I wouldn't expect
support from suckless out of the box.

I hope that helps.
