Old GNOME has been using its own icon standard and has been searching
icons in its own prefix or using GNOME2_PATH or GTK_PATH. Since version
2.8/2.10, GNOME and GTK+ follows XDG standards and uses variables
$XDG_DATA_DIRS (for icons and MIME) and $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS (for menu
layout). Both variables include only /usr.

You can try:
export XDG_DATA_DIRS=/usr/local/share/:/usr/share/:/opt/gnome2/share/
export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS=/usr/local/etc/xdg:/etc/xdg/:/etc/opt/gnome2/xdg/
