The output when i ran e17genmenu is this:
Total time 3.397 seconds, finding fdo paths 1.999, converting fdo menus
0.000, generating 0 (rejected 0) eaps in 0 menus 0.989, finding icons
0.279, generating eap caches 0.130.

however, after looking in the menu, it DID create some icons!!
It created 6 "sub menus" under "Generated Menus" (things like "Games"
and "Internet". And did create some eaps (lucky number 13 to be exact)
in those sub-menus. I have neither Gnome nor KDE installed, so the only
applications it is going to pick up are just .desktop files the
individual application's 'make install' put in the proper places.
