The DBus plugin has traditionally been included in the interpreter VMs, but I do not
see it in the Cog/Spur VMs. I cannot confirm, but I expect that it will work with 32-bit
Spur, although it will require some code maintenance to get it to work on 64-bit VMs.

I am CCing the vm-dev list in case someone can verify the DBusPlugin build for 32-bit Spur.
The plugin requires installing libdbus-1-dev on Linux.
