[systemd-devel] systemctl as non-root

I'm working on an embedded system, and I ran into a situation where a 
non-root user needs to runs systemctl, but when I try I get:
~ $ systemctl status
Failed to get D-Bus connection: No such file or directory

So, I try with the suid bit on systemctl set, but then I get:

~ $ systemctl status
Failed to read server status: Operation not permitted

My question is, is something broken, or is this expected behavior?
