Hm, I'm not sure.
You could start another session from an xterm on an alternate
display and adjust $PATH in advance.
(startx `which icewm` -- :1)

Sometimes only one of .profile and .bashrc is evaluated. 
I guess if you start icewm from a console session that has
/usr/local/bin and /usr/X11R6/bin already in $PATH they will be
honored by icewm.
