    GnomeVFS was deprecated 9 years ago. Make GIO, its replacement,
    the default searched by configure.ac instead.

    Don't require ORbit to compile. We never really needed it:
    GConf makes its own CORBA connection if it needs to, and
    the only reason we included orbit.h is to check whether
    the problematic version < 2.8 was present, as it deadlocks
    the GTK VCL plugin.

    But ORbit 2.8 was released in 2003, and GConf doesn't
    even use CORBA connections any more. So drop the check
    and stop needing ORBit altogether.
