Neither, just your typo, the stock id is "gtk-close".
Other languages may let you interchange "-" and "_", C API doesn't.
You should have noticed button's label was coerced into "gtkclose",
instead your locale's representation for "Close".
Compile and run it again after:
$ sed -i s/gtk_close/gtk-close/ stock.c

Activating /desktop/gnome/interface/buttons_have_icons could help:
$ gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/interface/buttons_have_icons -t bool 1
