I made my own fix, by cribbing some of the post-install steps from the dbus
port. But avahi still refuses to actually do anything.

Found user 'avahi' (UID 502) and group 'avahi' (GID 504).
Successfully dropped root privileges.
avahi-daemon 0.6.17 starting up.

the plist is loaded, and dbus is running.
