Hmm. okay, thanks for that suggestion, to override whatever is in the libs
But since I'm a sysadmin compiling these libs, etc for other people,
I'd really appreciate some tips on what I may need to recompile, so
that /opt is the *default*, rather than using env overrides.

I see in

that, "If $XDG_DATA_DIRS is either not set or empty, a value equal to
/usr/local/share/:/usr/share/ should be used."

but I'd like to know what library/.... is implementing this in or
under gtk,  so I can FIX it :-}

I should mention that my /opt/xxx compile, is a sidegrade to older
legacy stuff still living in /usr/share. So it's not okay to have the
'new' stuff default to checking there first :-(
