Yes, it should be pretty straightforward for you to remove the DBus bits
completely - just remove the src/virtManager/remote.py file, and any referneces
to DBus in srv/virt-manager.py.in

FYI, though I assume (from your email address) you're trying to get this
working on Solaris ? DBus should work on Solaris already, and I'm told
that there is also already a port of HAL to Solaris.

Dan.
