Default dbus-daemon

My system:
FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE-p4
KDE 3.5.10
Xorg 1.4

I don't have dbus, hal installed. In /usr/local/bin/ is dbus-daemon which sometimes is on but I dn't know why and which application called it. Okay, I see now...
I ran GIMP at this moment and:
ps -A | grep dbus
1310 ?? S 0:00.00 dbus-launch --autolaunch a337460d0873b5bf3ffd9c6f480c
1311 ?? Ss 0:00.01 /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --pri

Is it "must" that each Gnome app call a daemon, please or it is possible to stopped this?

Thanks a lot.

D-BUS supplies both a system daemon (for events such as "new hardware device
added" or "printer queue changed") and a per-user-login-session daemon (for
general IPC needs among user applications). Also, the message bus is built on
top of a general one-to-one message passing framework, which can be used by
any two apps to communicate directly (without going through the message bus

You can delete dbus (if you really want) but programs that depends on it may do something stupid/dumb ....

If using a full kde session, you probably will want dbus on.
