Ensure you configured with the same prefixes as your GNOME installation.
Normally this means ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc

But I wouldn't worry too much about this.  The bluetooth:/// thing is
about to disappear.  I just hacked up code last night for a "Send via
Bluetooth..." context menu item in Nautilus, and I'm working on a PyGTK
administration tool for devices.
Soon to be released and checked into GNOME CVS.
