You can set gconf preferences from the commandline using gconftool-2. 
To set the background from the commandline (and hence a script) you'll
need to do something like:

gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename
/path/to/picture.jpg --type=string

You might also want to set /desktop/gnome/background/picture_options to
"stretched", "scaled" etc.
