Package emacs-x11 depends on package dbus-x11, but fails to declare this


Package emacs-x11 depends on package dbus-x11 and should declare this,
but apparently does not.

Please change package emacs-x11 so that it declares its dependency on
paackage dbus-x11.

When doing a fresh install of Cygwin 64bit, I selected xlaunch,
"emacs-x11" and a few other packages and letÂthe dependency
satisfaction mechanism do its thing.
This resulted in a working X Server and XTerm, and
I could start emacs without X (option -nw).
However, trying to start Emacs for an Xterm without -nw
yields this output (and no Emacs window):

 process 7588: D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed to read machine uuid:\
  Failed to open "/etc/machine-id": No such file or  directory
 See the manual page for dbus-uuidgen to correct this issue.
   D-Bus not compiled with backtrace support so unable to print a backtrace
 Fatal error 6: AbortedAborted (core dumped)

Trying this did not work because the program was missing:

 dbus-uuidgen > /etc/machine-id
 -bash: dbus-uuidgen: command not found

Installing package dbus-x11 helped, Emacs starts now. (Yay! :-)

Best Regards, Rainer
