D-BUS is not a GUI thing. It is the IPC that NM uses to communicate
with everything,
including the daemons it manages (modemmanager, wpa_supplicant, pppd
etc) and the command-line client. So even if you hacked the source and
removed d-bus, the resulting
NetworkManager would not be able to manage much.

You can check what --with-distro the BLFS book proposes these days for example,
but probably the best would be to implement the proper backend for
your own distro
(based on what is already there) and thus use your distro's name as
argument. I don't think it is hard to do that at all.
