User (Profile) Specific Start Menu for RHEL 6.1 using KDE 4.3.4

I installed RHEL 6.1 with KDE 4.3.4 using LDAP on a PC and have now the problem to specifiy a user/Profile specific start menu.

I have used already the kmenuedit tool and tailored for one user a specific menu, successfully.
I changed as an example the konsole submenu.
The kmenuedit was generating a user specific file kde-konsole.setup of the edited menu file an stores it in the directory .local/share/applications/. This file was generated from the global menu file kde4-konsole.desktop stored in the directory /usr/share/applications/kde4/.
My question is, where can I store this generated user/profile that it is used when a new generated user is logging in the first time.
Before RHEL 6.x/ KDE 4.x always a mechanism with the /etc/skel directories was used, which seems to be not longer used.

Addtionally I had a look on the kiostool, but that does not longer work correctly for RHEL 6.x/KDE 4.x.

Does anyone have suggestions to solve this problem?
