1> Installed following rusers packages which are available in Fedora19
[root@localhost system]# rpm -qa | grep rusers
2> Lpar is updated with all the available packages
3> Tried to start the service
# /bin/systemctl start rusersd.service
Failed to issue method call: Unit syslog.target failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status syslog.target' for details.
Not sure some package is missing, same steps did work out for rhel64 w/o any issue

Can you paste this into your /usr/lib/systemd/system/syslog.target file :
# This file is part of systemd.
# systemd is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it
# under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by
# the Free Software Foundation; either version 2.1 of the License, or
# (at your option) any later version.
# This exists mostly for compatibility with SysV/LSB units, and
# implementations lacking socket/bus activation.
# Avoid that we conflict with shutdown.target, so that we can stay
# until the very end and do not cancel shutdown.target if we should
# happen to be activated very late.
and try restarting the syslog.target service like this :
/bin/systemctl start syslog.target
and then check , I think it will work
After asking systemd developers, it seems Requires=syslog.target shouldn't be there at all -- I'll remove it.

I checked on F18 -
[root@localhost ~]# cat /usr/lib/systemd/system/rusersd.service
Description=Remote Machine Logged In User Identfier
Requires=syslog.target network.target rpcbind.service
and having this just works fine

From Fedora POV, ppc and ppc64 are secondary arches, so to search for ppc builds you should use ppc.koji.fedoraproject.org. For this particular build use:
rusers-0.17-76.fc19 has been pushed to the Fedora 19 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
