Sorry for the late answer. 

This feature gets auto detected during build. 

That is, if you have the proper build dependencies installed, this
feature will be enabled automagically.

Play around a bit with installing/not-installing the following -dev


afaik, if you have all of them installed, the gnome component will get
built too. If you just install gconf-2.0 during build only the
'protocol handler through gconf' feature will be built in, iirc.
