It seems to work that way if you put (update-saw-menu) in user.jl, updating the menu
after loading the rc file(s).  This allows the user to either set their
own menu (dont need to set the 'use-fdo-menu variable, as fdo-menu will
not generate if apps-menu has a value), or set fdo-menu variables in
their .sawfish[/]rc file.

It will generate a default menu if the --no-rc switch is used, using the
language set from the system. (using the updated fdo-menu.jl)

here are the patches for user.jl and exrtras.jl if you want to try it out.
