Maybe it's too late for this suggestion now, but would it not be possible
to provide a dummy GConf2 module with UPDATED=now that depends on GConf
and therefore causes 'lin GConf' but itself has a do-nothing build stage?
Similarly for the other *2 modules. Then after one month, assume everyone
has updated and remove the *2 modules from the moonbase.
