The ability to include any directory in the start menu is available in 
1.7.5 and later.  Look up ".include" in the afterstep man page for more 

The ability to have a fixed section of the start menu has been available 
since 1.5beta4.  To turn it on, recompile AfterStep with:

./configure --enable-fixeditems

I recommend that the fixed section be small (like one submenu), as it's 
annoying to be unable to completely customize the menu.
