Wait a minute.  gkrellm is an X app.  You can simply specify the 
window size and position coordinates for it like most other X apps.
I just checked and the command line switch is:

	 -g, --geometry +x+y      Position the window on the screen.

So what's the problem?  You can specify this position regardless of
whether a window manager is running or not.

Or am I missing something?
