What does your .config contains (not only the BR2_PACKAGE_DBUS line) ?

There are two dependy mechanisms in Buildroot, which can sometimes get
confusing :

 * The Kconfig dependency stuff ;
 * The makefile dependency stuff.

In your case, it is possible that a package depends on dbus being built
in its .mk file, but that dependency is not visible in the Kconfig
stuff. After a quick look, I don't see for which package that could the
case, but maybe I missed something.
