DBus 1.8 is not really a hard dependency, but I have seen so many evil 
memory corruption bugs in versions < 1.8. Especially when using DBus in 
multiple threads which we're not using yet - it will come though when I 
finally have some time to rewrite the AM DBus adapter.

In essence - you can just remove the check for now and I might also 
relax it to a big fat warning until we really need it to prevent memory
