Modify AIDE's config to suit your needs.  Here's what works for me:

  # check user, group and permissions
  /var/log u+g+p
  # expect files to grow
  /var/log/.* >
  # permissions, user, group, number of links, and growing size for
  # syslog logs
  /var/log/syslog/.* p+u+g+n+S
  # don't check any of the following log directories
  =/var/log/(sysstat|setuid|apache|exim|ksymoops) R

And I don't use Debian package, I've compiled AIDE myself.  The config
files I'm using probably have very little in common with what Debian
