This is really bothering me. I think the biggest thing that BLFS
provides is the dependency lists. I carefully scan configure.{in,ac}
for each package. I suppose when I saw this:

if test "$ENABLE_HAL" = "yes"; then
        PKG_CHECK_MODULES(HAL, hal >= 0.5.7,
                [ USE_HAL="hal >= 0.5.7, hal-storage >= 0.5.7, dbus-1 >= 0.32, dbus-glib-1 >= 0.32"
                  AC_DEFINE(USE_HAL, 1, [defined if using libhal])
                [ USE_HAL=""])

in my mind this made dbus optional. Only problem is I overlooked this:

PKG_CHECK_MODULES(LIBGNOMEVFS, glib-2.0 >= $GLIB_REQUIRED gmodule-no-export-2.0 >= $GLIB_REQUIRED gthread-2.0 >= $GLIB_REQUIRED gobject-2.0 >= $GLIB_REQUIRED gconf-2.0 >= $GCONF_REQUIRED libxml-2.0 >= $XML_REQUIRED gnome-mime-data-2.0 $dbus_requirement)

and I just don't know how I missed the dbus requirement. I hope
this hasn't happened in other places down the road. I suppose now
I need to go in and rip out all the D-Bus optional dependencies in
other packages that require GNOME VFS.
