There is no option to explicitly specify a fixed port for outgoing syslog
messages to other syslogds (or at least one to specify 514).

Some facist setups require packets to have a certain source port, and there
is no harm for our syslogd to support this.

This PR superseds the mostly incomprehensible PR 44671.

Read syslogd(8).
