dbus has essentially no tie-in to X, so there should not be an issue. 
You can use dbus with no X server at all.

The dependencies for the reference implementation of dbus are just "an 
xml parser" (to parse the config files). We usually use expat but it's 
easy to make it use any parser you like with a little coding.
