Yes, I have create a link (I mean ln -s ...) in /usr/local to point on
/usr/share/themes and all goes fine (I have all my themes availables in XFce
config tools).
Only remains the problems of the warning I got when a ty tu use another gtk
engine than xfce (Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "XXXX"). But
I think it is the same problem.
I have to find where my build of gtk2.4 search for themes engines.

If you build gtk 2.4 from source and xfce as well, without changing
options, they will both install into /usr/local. The new gtk would then
look for themes in /usr/local/share/themes/, so there would really only
be the xfce themes available. Could that be what you're seeing?
