Files would go in tdebase/kcontrol/autostart/  Copy a CMakeLists.txt file
from any other folder in the tdebase/kcontrol/ directory into your new
tdebase/kcontrol/autostart/ directory.  Then edit
tdebase/kcontrol/autostart/CMakeLists.txt so that the source file names,
.desktop file name, and library name are all correct for the new autostart
module.  Finally, edit tdebase/kcontrol/CMakeLists.txt and add a new line
"add_subdirectory( autostart )" where it makes sense.
