It appears this has been supplanted by gnome-user-share in the extra repo. Actually, it doesn't compile throwing errors over GLib's old thread API, deprecated on March 2012 (right around when BlueZ 5.x was about to emerge). Ignoring those warnings, it throws errors related to bluez-libz -- itself also deprecated.

Also thought obex-data-server was a candidate, but it's also not seen an upstream release since April 2011 and isn't compatible with BlueZ 5.x.

Found this corroborating the issues I've been stumbling on: http://www.hadess.net/2013/11/bluetooth-file-sharing-obexpush-in.html -- "Switching to BlueZ 5.x meant that the old obex-data-server (which was used in both the gvfs ObexFTP backend, and gnome-user-share) couldn't be used anymore."
