Comment (by jciccone at linuxfromscratch.org):

 In the build I just did running gnome-system-log died with:
 Failed to find selected program.
 This was because /etc/security/console.apps/gnome-system-log had NONE/sbin
 /gnome-system-log as the program to be run. The reason for the NONE is the
 way $sbindir was expanded in configure. I wrote a patch changing the way
 it is expanded so it always expands to an absolute path.

 The patch is at http://cross-lfs.org/~jciccone/gnome-
 utils-2.16.1-logviewdir_fix-1.patch .
