It's something of a bug that the default location is hardcoded in 
libdbus - I think there's some @todo or FIXME about it. The location is 
in system.conf, not hardcoded in dbus-daemon, so in principle even local 
sites could move it, but in practice libdbus has it hardcoded so you 
can't change the config file...

Of course, the reason this is a FIXME and not fixed is that it's a lot 
of work to fix with little practical benefit ;-)
