Thank you Simon, this is exactly the reason that gnome-terminal would
fail to connect to DBus on GNU/kFreeBSD (and quits silently with exit
status 1).

I've just tested that your patch fixed the problem on kfreebsd-amd64;
gnome-terminal now starts up and works correctly in a graphical X11
environment.  The fix looks quite typical of other GNU/kFreeBSD porting

This probably also fixes more GNOME issues, that we didn't even know of yet.
