In 5.x the following would direct messages from host globalinx _only_
to /var/log/globalinx.log:

  *.err;kern.*;auth.notice;authpriv.none;mail.crit      /dev/console
  *.info;auth,authpriv,cron,ftp,kern,lpr,mail.none      /var/log/messages
  kern.debug                                            /var/log/messages
  auth,                                    /var/log/authlog                                             /var/log/cron                                              /var/log/xferlog                                              /var/log/lpd-errs                                             /var/log/maillog                                            /var/spool/uucp/ERRORS
  *.emerg                                                       *
  #*.notice                                             root
  # Save all globalinx log messages to separate file
  *.*                                                   /var/log/globalinx.log

In current this same syslog.conf now logs to both /var/log/globalinx.log AND

For both, syslogd is started with 'syslogd -b globalinx' , where globalinx is
an entry in /etc/hosts.  Adding '-U' option restores functionality, though it 
requires explict facility.level entries... 

Setup in both 5.x and current and write log messages to syslogd remotely.
