This is not currently possible (there is no setting to that effect that you may have missed).

This used to be possible but the feature was removed in 2007 :

  • eval.c, gnubg.c, gtkoptions.c, set.c, show.c: removed egyptian rule

either because it was a non-standard rule, because gnubg was not trained to play this way or a bit of both.

I suppose it would still play fine under this rule (or the other non-standard rule where pick-and-pass plays are not allowed) but I an not personally eager to add this feature back.
