for GTK2 you need to edit your ~/.gtkrc (or is it .gtkrc-2.0, I have symlinked them) to include something like this
include "/path/to/theme/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"
gtk-icon-theme-name = "Xi-GNOME" #where Xi-GNOME is a icons folder in your ~/.icons
the same thing goes for gtk1 include "/path/to/theme/gtk/gtkrc"
