Good to know - even with the DBus version currently in MacPorts?

No, it patches the way things are built. If you mean "this patch isn't upstreamed" then evidently, no it isn't, that's why I point out its existence :)
It's just not clear to me what it's supposed to change w.r.t. the default build. Based on the trac ticket (https://trac.macports.org/ticket/47741#comment:12) mentioned in the comment in the Portfile, it seems the patch disables EXTERNAL authentication on OS X, but it also sets broken_poll to yes (when cross_compiling), for some reason.
