I can report this bug in Debian BTS too, if you think it is useful.

Acording to GKSu's Home Page (http://www.nongnu.org/gksu/),
svn://svn.debian.org/svn/gksu is the official page

Who cares about svn://svn.debian.org/svn/gksu ? This bugtracker refers to http://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/?root=gksu .
If I had sufficient permissions I'd close this as INVALID now.
The bugtracker for your Debian code is at bugs.debian.org .

I've checked svn co svn://svn.debian.org/svn/gksu
I found a lot of GConf calls
For example in gksu/libgksu/trunk/libgksu/libgksu.h:
line 47
#include <gconf/gconf-client.h>
line 694
GConfClient *gconf_client;
line 697
gconf_client = context->gconf_client;
save_to_keyring = gconf_client_get_bool(gconf_client,...

I was asking about the upstream codebase, not about some distro's packaging.

Where in the codebase does gksu depend on gconf, please?

With GNOME 3.0 (april 2011), the GNOME Project decided to discontinue GConf.
It won't be maintained anymore: bugs and security holes will not be fixed.
Thus, GKSu shouldn't depend on GConf any longer.
Please, migrate to GSettings.
GStettings is the official GNOME replacement for GConf, and the GNOME project
is porting all of its applications to it:

You will find the official from GConf to GSettings porting guide at:
