Yes, I've seen that option; I'm trying to think of a solution without it.
My general strategy would be to
a) have gconftool-2 have an option that would give you a default writable 
schema install dir (which I suppose is doable, no ?)
b) use this call and option at INSTALL time so that we get a writable path

It looks like this is sane (unless you see something I've overlooked), 
with the crux being b), so if you'd consider this a good way to attack 
this I don't mind looking into it and cooking it up.  The template 
automake code is used  by every project in gnome, so it'd be nice to make 
this possible.
