[GRASS-user] Custom d.vect icons in WX-Python GUI

Hi  GRASS-users,

I have a series of custom icons/symbols that I often use when I create 
maps or display layers inside of the wx-gui. Older versions of the 
d.vect UI would recognize my grass-6.4.x/etc/symbol/CustomDirName 
directory and the list of CustomIcons inside of it. With newer 
enhancements to the GUI which now displays the icon itself as opposed to 
directory/name only, I am no longer able to select any custom icons.  
Note: I can still use the command line to display vector layers using a 
custom icon (e.g. d.vect map=camp icon=custom/camp)

How can I build my version of GRASS to allow me to choose icons in a 
custom symbol directory using the d.vect UI.

I am convinced I have seen documentation on how to do that in the past, 
but a couple hours of searching around the wiki today has turned up empty.
