OK, I finally found a way to inject the required variable into gvfsd's
environment.  Create this file:

   /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/00-gvfs-disable-fuse.sh

containing:

   GVFS_DISABLE_FUSE=1
   export GVFS_DISABLE_FUSE

The name of the file is important as it has to be run before the script
that starts dbus (00-start-message-bus.sh).

You could set the variable in 00-start-message-bus.sh itself, but since
it isn't marked as a configuration file it might get clobbered by an
update.
