In fact, I decided to go the "dirty hands" route (with essential
handholding from the Beyond Linux from Scratch instructions) and went
ahead and built and installed gvfs (which required a boatload of
dependencies) and fuse (which required reconfiguring and recompiling the
kernel), and this, in addition to launching dbus, was all it took: now
sftp works via Tramp again.  Thanks for convincing me to bite this
bullet (by explaining that Tramp needed these to work with sftp).
