I can't seem to use syslog in a chrooted environment.  I have enough shared
libraries in there that logger doesn't complain yet no output.  I assumed
that it was missing the /dev/log device so I null-mounted /dev on the
chrooted dev directory.  Still nothing.  In any case, I worry about the
idea of having my whole dev directory in a chrooted directory since the
idea is to make fewer things available in that environment.

If I can get it working this way I'll look at adding an option to syslogd
to allow it to open multiple sockets and select on them all but first I
need to make this work.  Any ideas?
