There have been a few reports of build failures on the gnome-love mailing list:
The check in configure.ac seems to be wrong:
if test "x$have_systemd" != "no" ; then
which, even when $have_systemd is ‘no’, will always evaluate as if systemd were found (prefixed ‘x’ in the first string but missing in the second string).
