That's true. Do you do a clean rebuild (rm -rf *build_*) or just edit
the configuration and run make again? Packages don't automatically get
removed from the target file system if you deselect them again.

The other option is some other package needing dbus, and hence forcing
it to be built, but then it should normally also depend / select it in
Kconfig, so you should see it in your .config

Could you post your .config please?
