Yes I had this already and that makes the panel find the entries.
I added the GNOME_PATH=/usr:/usr/local and that made Nautilus find the
icon in /usr/local/share/pixmaps. The panel doesn't seem to find it. 
So what is the sane behaviour? And what should a user have to do to make
gnome work with mulitple prefixes?

This is what I have found so far:
add a entry in 
in /etc/bonobo-activation/bonobo-activation-config.xml

add the line 
in /etc/gconf/2/path

add the entry
in /etc/gnome-vfs-2.0/vfolders/applications-all-users.vfolder-info
(as mentioned above... )
I also added the entry 
<MergeDir>/usr/local/share/gnome/vfolders/</MergeDir> is this correct? I
guess it's to find information about the menu structure...

and then use GNOME_PATH=/usr:/usr/local 

This seems to make things work quite OK, except for the fact that the
panel doesn't find the icons to use. Have I missed something or should I
file bugs?

If this is correct I think it should be added to the sysadmin guide,
making it easier to use multiple prefixes.
