Why should we disable something by default if that works with the
current instructions? It is clearly said that docbook-xml and
docbook-xsl are required if libxslt is installed. I would rather suggest
expanding the note saying that if libxslt is installed, but docbook
stuff isn't present someone could add --disable-man-pages.

Search the -support for the same problem. It is D-Bus that is problem,
not ConsoleKit. And it is a bad thing recommending consolekit, since
polkit is recommended for consolekit. It would be catch-22 situation.
You can pass test without consolekit running, but not without d-bus running.
Error getting system bus: Could not connect: No such file or directory.
is the actual problem.
