Thanks for the note. But dia doesn't directly need libdbus. The library
package is installed on build (and therefore somehow used for linking)
by a new dependency of an indirect dependency. Since the libdbus-dev
package is missing, this fails.

If I figured it out correctly, the respective dependency chain is:

  build-depends on libgnomeui-dev
    depends on libgnomevfs2-dev
      depends on libgnomevfs2-common
        depends on libdbus-glib-1-2
          depends on libdbus-1-2

Since I see a change in this area (dependencies) in gnome-vfs2, I'm
reassigning this bug. Feel free to reassign around if I'm not totally
correct. (I'm at least sure that it's a recently (1 week or so)
introduced change in a GNOME package with respect to dependencies.)
