	ACK, thanks for the information.

	However, contrary to GLib, Git actually follows the
	specification [1] by falling back to ${HOME}/.config should
	XDG_CONFIG_HOME be unavailable.  It doesn't seem to use
	getpwuid () there at all.

--cut: --
void home_config_paths(char **global, char **xdg, char *file)
	char *xdg_home = getenv("XDG_CONFIG_HOME");
	char *home = getenv("HOME");
	char *to_free = NULL;

		if (!xdg_home) {
			to_free = mkpathdup("%s/.config", home);
			xdg_home = to_free;
