Well, if you want to keep this one going -hasn't been updated for years, I can 
point you to a patch at
to be able to compile it against 2.6 headers. 

You may ask why I don't add this patch to moonbase... Well, the point is that it 
isn't backwards compatible with 2.4, and noone really recompiles it anyway since 
it is so old.

Our days, if you want that functionality, you can use syslog-ng (not in 
moonbase, and I'm bored, so I think I will try it right away, actually) or 
ulogd, that I tried, and didn't like, since it mucked up all my logs.
