I don't think this is the best solution. It still makes it awkward to
get the application to work both when uninstalled & when installed.

I think the best solution is for gnome-libs to have a pixmap path,
to which you can prepend new directories.

Then you can use relative pixmap filenames everywhere, as we do now,
and you can simply call 'gnome_add_pixmap_dir()' once to add any
directories which contain the pixmaps.
