It was installed, but the kicker was that something seemed to be wrong with
the init script, the syslogd and klogd daemons weren't restarting when I
executed their scripts, so the changes I made in the syslog.conf file were
being ignored.  Manually killing the processes and restarting them worked,
and logging is back... thanks all!

Hopefully I can return the favour for some *other* foolish newbie... ;)
