My information comes from Debian, so I don't know how pertinent it is
for you.

tail -24 /usr/share/doc/kdebase/README.Debian

3. Kpanel and menus:

If you have the menu package installed, kpanel will display the debian
of installed programs. Otherwise, you won't get any menus at all, so I
recommend you install the menu package.

Instead of adding new .desktop files to /usr/share/applnk directly, you
create debian menu files and run update-menus. See
/usr/share/doc/menu/README for

So, what do you have in /usr/share/applnk ?

I have 

rob at tp600x:/usr/share/applnk$ ls -F
Applications/  Help.desktop      Multimedia/            Toys/
Development/   Home.desktop      Office/                Utilities/
Editors/       Internet/         OpenOffice.org 1.0.1/  WordProcessing/
Games/         KControl.desktop  Settings/              ksysguard/
Graphics/      Kfind.desktop     System/
rob at tp600x:/usr/share/applnk$

which correspond closely to my menus.
