Yup. I wrote and tested it on x86. 

Just to test it, if you cd to the boot-floppies/utility/busybox
directory, run 'make' and then run (as root) 
    /etc/init.d/sysklogd stop
    ./busybox syslogd
the running
    pf fax
    tail -f /var/log/messages
should show BB syslogd and BB klog are running and doing their thing.

There may be something about the boot floppies that is different than my
devel box here at Lineo (PIII-500, latest Debian potato). Lemme compile
up the latest boot-floppies and try BB syslogd there.
