Fixed now in CVS:

* syslogd now creates the /dev/log socket to make sure it is there, and
    is actually a socket with the right permissions.
* Fixed up klogd so it works properly, and uses only system calls (doesn't
    need /proc).
* I've taken a first step to making busybox not need the /proc filesystem.
    Most apps don't need it.  Those that _require_ it, will complain
    if you enable them when you disable BB_FEATURE_USE_PROCFS.

Anyway, want to check that syslogd/klogd is now acting as expected.
Please note that this version ignores /etc/syslog.conf, and simply 
logs everything to /var/log/messages.
