As I see it, flogtool is distributed with Tahoe, and needs Tahoe 
dependencies to work. This is not a big deal if you set your PYTHONPATH 
variable, like this for example :

export PYTHONPATH=~/build/tahoe/support/lib/python2.6/site-packages/

then do

support/bin/flogtool tail -c ~/.tahoe-git/private/logport.furl

I'll let you fix the paths. This is what I use on a daily basis and it 
still worked a few minutes ago, and needs no installing. I am not sure 
it is exactly the way it was intended, someone might want to correct.
