I think what Christian is asking for is the following:
  - Automagic detection is the default if no option is specified,
  - but it should be possible to override it with configure
    options --with-dbus or --without-dbus.

But it is done in the above-mentioned way for most Emacs features.
Consider the case that someone builds Emacs on a computer where
libdbus is installed, but wants to copy the binary to another computer
where it isn't (or where no D-BUS daemon is running).
