This fails to build on RHEL 6.4:

  CC     libvirt_util_la-virdbus.lo
util/virdbus.c:242: error: 'DBUS_TYPE_UNIX_FD' undeclared here (not in a
cc1: warnings being treated as errors

DBUS_TYPE_UNIX_FD was added sometime after dbus-devel-1.2.24 and before
1.6.12; we'll have to make the code conditional and error out if a
client tries to pass an fd when using an older version of dbus.
