Thanks. But i didn't use --disable-config-hal... It was set to the default (auto). For that
reason I was hoping not to have to mess with hald to make the server running

I guess i'll have to explicitely attempt to use the "--disable-config-hal" flag
next time I want to try a build. 

hal/dbus is such a mess anyway that i'm quite happy to learn its being deprecated
by udev. :)
