Turning off all the options (all the xxx=0) certainly handicaps our ability to read the files.  Don't specify those unless you need to force it to ignore sentences.

I've used the search, and found this:

But by browsing my NMEA-log I can defenitly see positions here:

...
$GPGGA,000048.6,4816.257039,N,01609.629304,E,1,05,2.3,455.8,M,0,M,,*75

$GPRMC,000048.6,A,4816.257039,N,01609.629304,E,0.0,,281208,,,A*4E
...

I've got gpsbabel from my default system repos -> Linux Mint 14 = Ubuntu
12.10
Package Version of gpsbabel & gpsbabel-gui = 1.4.3-1ubuntu1

$ gpsbabel -V
GPSBabel Version 1.4.3

This is the output that the gpsbabelfe gui gave me:

gpsbabel -w -t -i
nmea,gprmc=0,gpgga=0,gpvtg=0,gpgsa=0,get_posn=0,append_positioning=0,gisteq=0
-f /path/file.bin -o
gpx,suppresswhite=0,logpoint=0,humminbirdextensions=0,garminextensions=0 -F
/path/file.gpx

Translation successful

Here's an example of my NMEA log files:
http://pastebin.com/xmET8hED

This is the resulting gpx file:
