setting up a shared-nfs-exported-root environment, I noted that there is
one place where /dev is still written (lpd uses /var/run/printer instead
of the 4.3BSD /dev/printer):
the default __PATH_LOG is "/dev/log" (defined in src/sys/sys/syslog.h).
I propose to change this to "/var/run/logsocket".
People will have to update their libc (for openlog()) and their syslogd
at the same time, or call syslogd with "-p /dev/log" until their libc is
recompiled, or with "-p /var/run/logsocket" until their syslogd is recompiled.
