dbus linked with libglib by default

Libdbus contains many functions and structures that were taken from glib, only 
the prefix was changed, for example:
dbus_new/delete, dbus_string_*,  dbus list_*, dbus_mutex_*, dbus_loop_*, 
dbus_spwan etc ...
I guess this was to avoid linking to glib, hence to make the qt guy accept 
Things has changed, the upcoming Qt 4.2 is linked with glib. Actually, this is 
a good news for dbus. By using glib directly, the codesize can be shrink 
roughly by half, startup time too can be reduce too since less code needs to 
be loaded in ram. It would be event better for embedded system where even 
100kb is important.
Maintenance can be reduce too, all bugs solved in glib are directly solves in 
dbus, no need to periodically merge.
Apart from the initial work to change all dbus function to their glib 
counterpart, there isn't any drawback at all.
