m-c allows to disable building against gconf (see http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/configure.in#5015), c-c could allow doing the same. Atm, if you build against gtk2, gconf is enabled inconditionally (see http://mxr.mozilla.org/comm-central/source/configure.in#4863) and there's no way to disable it.

Is there any particular reason ? If not, i'll do a patch..
We've generally not been doing build system ports unless we need to, in lieu of getting bug 648979 implemented. If you need it, then there's nothing against porting that.

Here's the patch backported from mozilla/configure.in .. i'll do some build testing here. And i need it because most of our users dont want the de on gconf, hence we hack it out from configure..

Forgot to say that it actually works, if using --disable-gconf in .mozconfig MOZ_GCONF_CFLAGS and MOZ_GCONF_LIBS are properly unset.
