Duh.  That's not portsentry, it's logcheck's setup's fault, or at
least the way logging is done's fault.  It's something's fault.  ;)
Portsentry logs to both syslog and daemon, and logcheck checks both
syslog and daemon.

Are all entries in syslog duplicated from more specific logfiles, such as
(for instance) the mail log and kernel log?  Do we have a logging policy
around here somewhere?
