This is because the 2.4 series uses a different mechanism to locate the documentation, which is hard-coded at compile time. So XDG_DATA_DIRS only works with fairly recent trunk builds and for future system-installed gnucash starting from GnuCash 2.6.

Ah, that makes sense. I'll update the wiki page with that. In general, are improvements like this not often backported to 2.4? I'm not very familiar with the GnuCash release management policies, sorry for asking n00b questions :-)
