One solution is to add a command-line option, something like this (sorry for
any lurking bugs):

static gchar *media_path = NULL;

static const struct poptOption my_opts[] =
  {"media-path", 'm', POPT_ARG_STRING, &media_path, 0, 
      N_("Path to graphics files"), N_("PATH")},
  {NULL, '\0', 0, NULL, 0}

int main(int argc, char *argv[])

  gnome_init_with_popt_table("myapp", VERSION, argc, argv, my_opts, 0, NULL);
  if (media_path != NULL)
    g_message("Using media files at %s", media_path);
