Comment (by gctwnl):

 I've had to revert back to the wrapper for the startupitem. The reason is
 that daemondo expects the command not to go in the background and for nsd
 that means the -d flag. But the result of that is logging to stderr
 instead of to the log file, so no logging. Catching stderr in a startup
 item is not supported by daemondo and I've never seen it work from launchd
 (there is an entry in the plist, but it doesn't do anything).

 I've given up on unified logging for now. syslog logging I would like to
 add a log rotation instruction to newsyslog (file in /etc/newsyslog.d/).
 Is that something that can be done automatically by a port?
