It all depends on what your PixmapPath, IconPath and FontPath are set.
By default they are set to look in 2 locations :

in /usr/local/share/afterstep
and in ~/gla/  (at the moment)

Idea is that fonts and icons distributed with AS should stay in 
/usr/local/share/afterstep, but all the icons/TTF fonts that you 
created/download/etc yourself should go into ~/gla/
