You'd set FILESDIR to point to distcc/files.  But wait...

You'd probably do this in a slightly different manner.  Instead of
making distcc-gtk include _everything_ that is already in distcc, change
it to provide the new frontend plus the icon plus the desktop file only.
Then, add a dependency on distcc.  This way the two packages will not
conflict (and will hopefully be easier to manage).
