Christian and myself arrived at the same conclusion at the same time.
libpcap0.8-dev sets Libs.private: -ldbus-1 in its pkg-config file, but
it does not have a dependency on libdbus-1-dev, so when OVS autoconf
file uses the PKG_CHECK_MODULES_STATIC macro with dpdk it gets
-ldbus-1 added but the required files are not there in a minimal build

I've opened a bug and a MR:

If there is an urgent upload needed, as a temporary workaround
openvswitch could build-depend on libdbus-1-dev. But I wouldn't think
a new upload is needed just to fix this.

Kind regards,
