I had this problem too, the solution is to use the break my gentoo
ebuild at least once, this will put a script, /etc/init.d/messagebus
which you can use to start it, and add it to a run level. Once it's in
once you can go back to the normal gentoo ebuild, or build from source.
The script won't be deleted.
I did put a bug in for dbus @ bugs.gentoo.org but I'm not sure is the
script hase made its way into the official ebuild yet.
