The how-it-works information is this:

To compile a module into a different prefix, you configure (or autogen)
with --prefix=/my/new/prefix
To run a GNOME living in a different prefix, you put $PREFIX/bin into
$PATH and $PREFIX/lib into $LD_LIBRARY_PATH (generally before anything
To make compiles pick up the right GNOME, you need to set the above
variables and also put $PREFIX/lib/pkgconfig into $PKG_CONFIG_PATH

So remember to have all 3 of these environment variables set when
compiling and running GNOME from a different prefix. Garnome and jhbuild
manage a lot of this stuff for you.
