abrt should match FreeDesktop directories specs

abrt shouldn't create a .abrt folder.

According to fd.o specification, it should put user preferences in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME.

Any user date should go to $XDG_DATA_HOME.

Any cache stuffs should go to $XDG_CACHE_HOME.

Attached is a patch (from Jon McCann) to migrate abrt to use XDG dirs. Jon told me patch is compile-tested but not runtime-tested.
