I've just coded a preliminary (untested) syslog support into IceCast2, 
but I wondered if access log should also go to syslog or only what's
in the error log.

the quick thing I've done is keep both access and error log files, but
ADDITIONNALLY send to syslog, this is triggered with a new (-s) command
line option.

I don't know if short-circuiting completely access and error log 
in case the admin wants to use syslog is a good thing or bad thing,
that's why I've kept the original behavior.

I can't compile it on my home machine this evening (mess in 
installed libraries) , so I'll only be able to test tomorrow, but if 
someone is interested I can send the patch here before I test it, it 
*should* work but maybe there are typos...
