I don't see where. All my googling renders nothing about having  
postfix not use syslogd for logging. I'm sure it's there and just a  
case of keywords like postfix change log location returning postfix  
changelog history.

If anyone knows how to tell postfix to log to a file of my choice or  
use a macports syslog-ng would be oh so groovy.
