Build changes for 0.61

I've run into the same problem in a Scratchbox non-x86 environment.
The trouble seems to be an incomplete implementation of UNIX sockets
(the default mode in which the bus fires up) in QEMU (used for CPU
Patching the system bus's service configuration file ("system.xml"
perhaps? I don't have access to the source) to use TCP sockets instead
allowed my build to complete. You can always switch back to UNIX
sockets when deploying the build binaries onto the target system.
