That was rather simple, actually. Since I'm trying all this with the MacPorts build I am working with a build directory that has a somewhat crazy long path, which apparently shouldn't be used for creating sockets. Using the configure option --with-test-socket-dir=/tmp solved this.

Now I'm seeing

%> test/test-dbus-daemon
/creds: OK
/processid: **
ERROR:dbus-daemon.c:548:test_processid: assertion failed (error.name == DBUS_ERROR_UNIX_PROCESS_ID_UNKNOWN): ("org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs" == "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnixProcessIdUnknown")
Exit 134
