Details

Description:
Since version 0.4.0, avant-window-navigator uses desktop-agnostic instead of gconf. It's a frontend for configuration backend and vfs. There is no dependency of gconf anymore and AWN can now be used on very lightweight systems without gconf too! desktop-agnistic would just save configuration in a ini-like file under $HOME/.config directory.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
avant-window-navigator-0.4.0-10

when trying to compile it, it says it needs gconf, i don't think you can disable it.
Nevermind: --without-gconf exists

I made already a custom PKGBUILD for it and it works fine without gconf at all. You'll need gconf in makedepends, but not in depends. There is still a problem with installation script used in PKGBUILD, where gconf is used to install schemes. The awn runtime itself uses desktop-agnostic later to handle it's configuration. If gconf should be used behind it, then the installed schemes are needed.
You can take a look at this dependency matrix(look at footnotes too): http://wiki.awn-project.org/Dependency_Matrix

We have to think about how to get gconf schemes problem solved, since if you would want to install gconf after awn, then the schemes would be unknown and desktop-agnostic wouldn't know how to get configuration data for awn.
