Follow-up Comment #5, task #10934 (project weechat):

> I agree that Weechat is easy to build, but not all users have enough rights
to install all -dev libraries needed, so at least a $WEECHAT_HOME environment
variable would be still better.

The WEECHAT_HOME set during compilation is just the default one, but you can
still override it at any time with the --dir (or -d) command line argument.

Anyway, changing default to XDG directories implies other things, not just
change the default path. If I understand well, other paths should change too
(to store logs, cache files, scripts, and other files used by plugins). And
there it's more difficult, because all current plugins/scripts know only one
path to the "home".
WeeChat has not only one config file in the home, but a tree with many
different things.
