I think this is caused by GConf. Unfortunately I have NFC how that
stuff works or what it's even supposed to accomplish. All I know is that
firefox does a dlopen() on libgconf-2.so (evil++ given that it's not
even a dependency of the package) and that this is what in turn launches
dbus. You can try to move away libgconf-2.so.* from /usr/pkg/lib,
chances are things might work then.
