This is the whole change we did [1] for the cursor to work:

+        # XCURSOR_PATH
+        xcursordir = os.path.join(self.prefix, 'share', 'icons')
+        addpath('XCURSOR_PATH', xcursordir)

Effectively it sets XCURSOR_PATH to 
<sugar-jhbuild-location>/install/share/icons, e.g. 
Some other variables being set are XDG_DATA_DIRS and XDG_CONFIG_DIRS, 
with the same logic (see Config.setup_env() in jhbuild/jhbuild/config.py

Are the build logs still around? I suspect it's rather some uncatched 
icon-slicer error or something like that.
