	/var/log/aculog is missing.
	add an accoutn to group dialer.  edit /etc/remote to point
	at a known tty and make that tty owned by uucp.dialer.  Now
	tip(1) to the tty and what tip complain about /var/log/aculog
	missing.  Thus no logs are made of dialout activity.
	Make sure /var/log/aculog exists with the proper
	permissions such as in this patch:
