 Maybe need an INSTALL script fragment to do:
     The primary usage of dbus-uuidgen is to run in the post-install script
     of a D-Bus package like this:
        dbus-uuidgen --ensure
 (quoted from manpage)
 Note I don't run dbus rc.d script (it is not installed nor enabled) which 
 also creates it. dbus is running on my system. I assume it was started 
 automatically by some dbus-enabled program.
 I was able to repeat this problem by removing the machine-id file.
 This works for me:
 $ cat sysutils/dbus/INSTALL                                                    
 # $NetBSD$
 case ${STAGE} in
         ${PREFIX}/bin/dbus-uuidgen --ensure
 I also bumped PKG_REVISION.
 Okay if I commit?
