Thanks! Indeed, that seems to be source of the version definitions.

It looks like the new D-Bus interface implementation did not have the
backwards compatibility code and commit
8ddef94bd41747ba658ed4ed5dfa9e62b4b84cfa combined the initialization
code in a way that the old interface ended up using the new code. At
that point, the compatibility wrapper for dbus_watch_get_unix_fd()
disappeared. Since no one has complained about this over the last two
years, it looks like no one cares about the old version anymore. I'll
remove the now unused version definitions.
