when i want to browse my phone over bluetooth via nautilus using gvfs and obex-data-server, o-d-s should be started automatically via dbus when it's needed. however, arch's package is built with --enable-system-config, which adds --system-bus to /usr/share/dbus-1/services/obex-data-server.service. this prevents o-d-s to be run by an unpriviliged user and browsing via gvfs and sending files fails.

please remove the --enable-system-config argument from the PKGBUILD which fixes this problem and makes o-d-s usable again.
This task depends upon

--enable-system-config is still in pkgbuild, obex-data-server still not work.
