Comment (by RJVB):

 So the setuid error is not correct, that's annoying.

 Are you by any chance doing this as root?

 If you're not, then you have started the wrong DBus daemon. The system
 DBus daemon is rarely necessary, but the user session DBus is required for
 many things:

 > launchctl load -w /opt/local/Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-

 Quit and restart Terminal.app, restart your XQuartz session or simply log
 off and back in after that command. Now pulseaudio ought to find your
 session DBus.

 If not: what does `port installed dbus` show?
