The question was how to configure gstreamer without gconf. Without gconf
installed there's no ~/.gconf and no gconftool. I'm under the impression
that gstreamer is impossible to configure without gconf. gstreamer is
afaik supposed to support jack as audio output, but no gstreamer
depending application I ever encountered provided a way to set its audio
output to jack, or change any other audio option for that matter.
