compiling 0.6.5: NIH_DBUS_TOOL

I'm trying to compile 0.6.5 and bumping into an error:

[...lines deleted]
Making all in init
make[3]: Entering directory
  GEN    com.ubuntu.Upstart.c
/bin/sh: line 2: --package=upstart: command not found
make[3]: *** [com.ubuntu.Upstart.c] Error 127
make[3]: Leaving directory

Browsing the file init/Makefile, I determined that $(NIH_DBUS_TOOL) was
either empty or not set. If I explicitly set it during configure, then it
compiles fine. I do have libnih 1.0.1 installed in a non-standard location,
if that makes a difference.

            PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$(STAGEDIR)/lib/pkgconfig \
            NIH_DBUS_TOOL=$(STAGEDIR)/bin/nih-dbus-tool ./configure

Just wanted to let you know, in case this behavior is unexpected.
