Ok. We don't usually support several versions of a package, except for
very special cases. And for the moment 1.3.0 is only a development

Could you send a patch that just bumps the version to 1.2.16 and

BTW, the issue is that dbus < 1.2.16 uses libtool 1.5.x, which is
notoriously broken for cross-compilation. That's why we have this
package/buildroot-libtool.patch thing that can be enabled/disable using
<PKG>_LIBTOOL_PATCH (default is enabled). dbus >= 1.2.16 uses libtool
2.2.x, which seems to have been fixed (i.e it works without the patch).

BTW, I'm precisely currently trying to improve how we handle libtool.
But the result of this work is only for after 2009.08.
