A short addendum: when compiled with DBUS support this doesn't mean
that the dbus daemon is required to run to make use of
avahi-daemon. It is fine install avahi-daemon without the dbus daemon
with only libdbus installed.
We could even choose to make the DBUS stuff a DSO or something, which
can be loaded if requested in the configuration file. But I doubt that
this would be worth it.
