As we know beep has the same API as xmms (beep was forked from xmms), so gkrellmms can be patched for beep!
This work was already done by Russian's hacker's from ALT Linux Team (www.altlinux.com) and can be downloaded there [ftp://ftp.altlinux.com/pub/distributions/ALTLinux/Sisyphus/files/SRPMS/gkrellm-gkrellmms-2.1.22-alt1.src.rpm].

I want to describe how to install this really handy plugin under Gentoo Linux.

Code:
1. Download source RPM
  wget ftp://ftp.altlinux.com/pub/distributions/ALTLinux/Sisyphus/files/SRPMS/gkrellm-gkrellmms-2.1.22-alt1.src.rpm

2. Let's un-pack it
  rpm2targz gkrellm-gkrellmms-2.1.22-alt1.src.rpm ; tar -xzf gkrellm-gkrellmms-2.1.22-alt1.src.tar.gz

3. Open this archive and prepare sources 4 compiling
  tar -xjf gkrellmms-2.1.22.tar.bz2
  cd gkrellmms
  zcat ../gkrellmms-2.1.22-alt-beep.patch.gz | patch -p1

4. Compile it :]
  make use_beep=yes

5. Install it in your's home directory
  cp gkrellmms.so ~/.gkrellm2/plugins/gkrellms-beep.so
