Ah, I didn't realize DBus supported such platforms.
I don't have access to an ARM system or anything esoteric, but I did
rebuild with -funsigned-char, and "make check" still passes fine.
This makes sense, as I none of the code I changed now assumes that
chars are signed, so it's effectively running in exactly the same way
as it used to.
