GIOChannel is an old API inside libglib. It's not related to the new
libgio (quite confusing).
Searching the sources, libgio seems to be used in the gp11 module only,
and just for GCancellable and GAsyncReadyCallback - no GIO/GFile
operations are used. As libgio ships with the glib package anyway and
doesn't depend on GVFS, no big deal i guess.

gconf seems to be used to enable/disable certain daemon components (like
ssh,keyring,pkcs11) -> see gkr-daemon.c
As this configuration is only read when the deamon is started, it's
problably not hard to move it to a plain config file in
