It does not exist yet, since it isn't used by default.
Just create it and put a file into it.
I use it for setting KDEDIRS like this

root@artemis ~ # ls -l /usr/env
insgesamt 8
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 61 2006-11-07 14:04 10-kdedirs.sh

root@artemis ~ # cat /usr/env/10-kdedirs.sh
export KDEDIRS=/usr/local:/usr

Adding something to startkde has the disadvantage that you will loose the 
modification next time the package containing it is update.
