Well.. please don't report this to bug-coreutils ;)
I'll try to find a solution to this problem. Probably have to hack the 
lfs.xsl file, which I've been trying to avoid. :(

I suspect it's the "dummy" user that can't write to the /tmp/paco.tmp 
file owned by root.

As a temporary workaround you can edit 
lfs-commands/chapter06/072-coreutils like this:

echo "dummy1:x:1000:" >> /etc/group
echo "dummy2:x:1001:dummy" >> /etc/group
echo "dummy:x:1000:1000::/root:/bin/bash" >> /etc/passwd
make NON_ROOT_USERNAME=dummy check-root
src/su dummy -c "make RUN_EXPENSIVE_TESTS=yes check"
sed -i '/dummy/d' /etc/passwd /etc/group
export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libpaco-log.so
make install

notice the position of the unset and export commands.

Another workaround, would be not to run the test-suite at all... :(

I'll see what I can do to fix this..
