I now see that.  I was in the process of installing 60+ packages just to
get to the point where I could build and test KDE.  I didn't read it
closely enough.  What I still don't understand is why one could get into
the situation that "packages install a D-Bus  .service file outside of
the standard /usr/share/dbus-1/services directory".  Have you run in
that situation?

In any case, I think it may be appropriate to add:

'mkdir -p /usr/local/share/dbus-1/services. right below

cat > /etc/dbus-1/session-local.conf << "EOF"

Alternatively, we might add a highlighted note to the effect that the
user should ensure the directory specified in session-local.conf exists.

What do you think?
