Therefor, unpacking the sysklogd package and taking /etc/syslog.conf from it
should get you back the config file. But I am not sure that other packages
do not change it to suit there needs.
If I am not mistaken then /etc/init.d/sysklogd restart would restart the
logging facilities without the need to reboot.
