There is a syslog() in FWTK which can use UDP, but i am not sure if it
compatiblke with libc's and if it can be preladed.

I ember that in sme libc versios there was a compile time switch for that...
default glibc uses only datagramm and stream Unix Socket Connections as far
as i remeber.

There is a syslog redirector for chroot setups, and there is a socket
acceptor which will forward the messages to stdout to be used with djb's

Whats the reason for not using Unix Domain Sockets? They will work on
RO-Root filesystem.
