As sugar-jhbuild installs files in non-standard locations, we need to
tell programs where to look using environment variables like PATH,
LD_LIBRARY_PATH and MANPATH. XCURSOR_PATH (see Xcursor(3)) is just yet
another of these variables.
Since Debian installs in standard paths, setting XCURSOR_PATH shouldn't
be necessary. I just wanted to make sure there's not an easy workaround.
