You will basically render all your dbus services useless if you move to
0.23 since there is API breakage.  We have these issues fixed in Rawhide
and will be moving to 0.30 soon.  If you really want the newer D-BUS for
development I suggest moving to rawhide.  If you still feel like moving
to the newer dbus on FC3 use this configure line:

./configure --enable-maintainer-mode --build=i686-redhat-linux-gnu --
host=i686-redhat-linux-gnu --target=i386-redhat-linux-gnu --program-
prefix= --prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --
sbindir=/usr/sbin --sysconfdir=/etc --datadir=/usr/share --
includedir=/usr/include --libdir=/usr/lib --libexecdir=/usr/libexec --
localstatedir=/var --sharedstatedir=/usr/com --mandir=/usr/share/man --
infodir=/usr/share/info --enable-glib=yes --enable-qt=no --enable-
selinux=yes --disable-gtk --with-init-scripts=redhat --enable-tests=yes
--enable-verbose-mode=yes --enable-asserts=yes
