I was getting ready to post a similar query about dbus -- I ran into
the same issue when building a package for straw (an RSS feed
aggregator.)  I tend to think that nothing in pkgsrc should be using a
directory in /var/lib.  That said, you should
have /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/dbus -- pkgsrc generally puts things
under /usr/pkg -- and that's the file that should be copied
to /etc/rc.d.
