System-wide configuration values (defaults) need to be in /etc/gconf. A
schema file has been long overdue, because all the defaults are
still hardcoded in the src.

As Michael suggested, you could use gconftool, and set a schema. 
I think all you want to do is configure the dictionary files globally so
that your users won't need to do this.
The dictionaries are in /apps/gjiten/general/dictionary_list, so you will
have to set this.
List types are complicated and I haven't figured out how to use gconftool
with these but should be something like:
gconftool --type=list --long-desc="dictionary list"
--owner=gjiten --list-type=string --set-schema
/apps/gjiten/general/dictionary_list /usr/share/gjiten/edict

The best solution would be to create a schema file and install that.
