A patch to simply remove the update-desktop-database call is unlikely to
be accepted upstream, as people building for themselves want the call.

What you'd want to send upstream is a patch either to make the call
optional - enabled by default, but add a ./configure parameter to
disable it - or to make the call happen or not depending on whether
$(DESTDIR) is set. See the discussion between me and Colin Walters
elsewhere in the thread.
