I didn't create the links but here's what I got:

$ dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.DBus 
/org/freedesktop/DBus org.freedesktop.DBus.StartServiceByName 
string:org.freedesktop.Hal uint32:0
Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name 
org.freedesktop.Hal was not provided by any .service files
