Can you attach the config.log file dbus build dir?

Just FYI, a patch was submitted for this on November 16. It was bugging me because it affects avahi on brcm 2.4 as well.
I hope it helps.

On kamikaze 10.3.1, 2.4 kernel this wasn't fixed yet. I've managed to get it to compile by manually applying patch to instead of configure.

That last file is regenerated during build, so patching it is kinda useless.

Yep, that's what my patch of November 16 did...
