I got the sources with "apt-get source dbus" from the debian squeeze
Dbus 1.2.16 is the latest I think.

Changelog does not contain any emdebian logs. After running emdebuild
there is an emdebian changelog.

Depends: libdbus-1-3 (=1.2.16-2em1em1), pkg-config
My workaround for now is to modify the dependency in the control file
(no versioning for libdbus and removing pkg-config) before running
