Where does this consider the hard-coded value to be the highest priority?
In the case of dbus-1.14.4, it appears to be hard-coded in the following.

File: dbus-1.14.4/dbus/dbus-sysdeps-unix.c
_dbus_read_local_machine_uuid (DBusGUID   *machine_id,
                               dbus_bool_t create_if_not_found,
                               DBusError  *error)

DBUS_MACHINE_UUID_FILE is set by configure to the following value.


These were found in a trace of dbus-uuidgen --ensure running in

I don't like /var/lib either, but if the talk of moving it to /var/db is
adopted, will all these be patched or a symlink-maze :) created?
