That is a bug. We use dbus to talk to avahi and to talk to HAL, but
both of those cases are supposed to fail gracefully if not available.
So if you start libvirtd without dbus running, it should still work.

That said, your original patch is still worthwhile, but would appreciate
someone tracking down the bug which prevents libvirtd working without
dbus too....
