Summary: app-emulation/virt-manager[gtk]: please remove dbus[X] runtime dependency

Description ponky 2022-10-15 20:59:29 UTC
dbus[X] was added to RDEPEND because virt-manager incorrectly used dbus-launch instead of dbus-run-session when saving configuration on X11. This is not the case anymore and saving configuration works for x11-forwarded sessions without dbus[X].
