Do you want that trash and/or other devices show up? If not, simply get
rid of gvfs. Getting rid of gvfs also will protect your external green
drives from endless repeated spin downs and spin ups. On Linux were I
use lots of gvfs dependent software, I build an empty dummy package for
gvfs. Upstream of some software makes gvfs an optional dependency, it
e.g. is optional for Xfce4's file manager Thunar, upstream of the GNOME
forks isn't that smart, for e.g. Caja and Nemo gvfs without a good
reason is a hard dependency, but it's absolutely not needed, if you
mount manually by command line or scripts or e.g. use Rodent to mount by
mouse click and if you don't use trash, but instead delete directly.
You don't need to recompile Caja without gvfs, just removing
gvfs is all you need to do.
