Hi,

Running portupgrade with "batch_enable=YES" by default I also haven't
noticed anything during the upgrade. 

Then I ran into the same error that your have - dbus complaining about
not being able to connect. After spending quite some time googlin'
around I finally hit this:

http://www.freebsd.org/gnome/docs/faq2.html
and more specifically
http://www.freebsd.org/gnome/docs/faq2.html#full-gnome

I finally enabled everything but gdm since I prefer to start up in
console mode then manually going to X (which is very handy now as
there are serious problems with X)

Hope this helps,
-ewald
