Re: choosing a syslog facility other than 'daemon'

Funny you should reply now- I spent the morning hacking on autoconf and friends, so configure can be used to select a log facility; and also, a useful method to point configure at libevent not located in /usr/local/lib.

I suspect that a "nicer" way to support other log facilities would be to add support in config.c; which I may do instead, given the time. Of course, given the lack of interest, I suspect that compile-time would be good enough.

I will make sure to send diffs if/when I get them working.

Hi Matt,

You're the only person who wants this, as far as I've heard. Did
you have another facility in mind, or did you want to handle all
of them?

I would be pleased to apply a patch. :)
