Hmm, actually please forget this patch. Even if it is the right place to
install the dbus configuration files, it will break 'make distcheck' and
more generally any non-root install (even if a non-root install does not
make much sense for NetworkManager, right ?).

Too bad that there isn't a nicer "autotools-way" to deal with these system
paths, but the explicit --sysconfdir seems to be the right solution.

Sorry for the noise.

More interesting patches to follow ;-)
