Something like this:

$ xdg-settings get default-web-browser
xdg-settings: unknown desktop environment

There ought to be some better way maybe, but you'd at least find out if the
XDG utilities are in path and think the environment is set up correctly. 
Please not that XDG cautions against using its services for root, so that'd
be another vector to check.

Or you could leave it in and see who complains.  The instances where
xdg-open doesn't work or is not correctly configured will probably be in
multi-user / corporate environments where it is unlikely that the newest Org
or Emacs is installed anyway.
