 Which is presumably exactly the other way around most people would want :).

 As far as I'm aware D-Bus itself (i.e. the bus) is not needed for building, 
only the libraries are, so I expect you can use a newer dbus package and 
build with it without problems. I don't know what that would mean for running 
the resulting build.

 And I'd encourage this. Some of the fixes I've done in the KDE4 integration 
code work much better with recent Qt4/kdelibs4 versions, so distributions 
should build with whatever Qt4/kdelibs4 packages they have.
