I found the solution myself which might be useful to other people
searching the archives of this mailingslist:

During compiling, set:
bash-2.02$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/mygnome/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
bash-2.02$ export CFLAGS="-O2 -msupersparc $CFLAGS"
bash-2.02$ export CPPFLAGS="-I$HOME/mygnome/include $CPPFLAGS"
bash-2.02$ export LDFLAGS="-L$HOME/mygnome/lib $LDFLAGS"
bash-2.02$ export GNOME_LIBCONFIG_PATH=$HOME/mygnome/lib

During running gnome, set:
export GNOMEDIR=$HOME/mygnome
