Firstly, you need to double-delimit your select attribute: select="foo"
means "select the foo element"; if you want to select a string, you need to
put select="'string'".  The double quotes are the usual attribute
delimiters, and the single quotes then indicate string delimitation. You
will still have to escape the illegal characters within your string,
however, so it might be much easier just to give the string as the variable
content, rather than using the select attribute:

<xsl:variable name="entering_log">sprintf(log_str, "\n%s: %d: %s: %s",
__FILE__,__LINE__,fn, "Entering"); log_func();</xsl:variable>
