The documentation of gtkwave says that remote control is possible using gconftool-2.
For example, to reload the waveform on a running instance of gtkwave one can run (from a shell / from a makefile): gconftool-2 --type string --set /com.geda.gtkwave/0/reload 0
This feature needs to be enabled explicitly by adding --with-gconf to the ./configure call. This is not done in the current PKGBUILD file. It would be nice to have this feature enabled.

I tested successfully with these ./configure options:

./configure \
--prefix=/usr \
--disable-tcl \
--disable-mime-update \
--with-gconf <-- added to existing PKGBUILD

Additional info:
* package version(s) 3.3.76-1

This task depends upon
