[syslog-ng] Logging console?

I would like to know if it is possible/wise to log messages sent to the console? 

Unattended machines without monitors usually report messages during bootup that 
I never see since they are exclusively directed to the console.  During normal 
operations I believe there are messages that can be sent exclusively to the 
console (ie: perl -w warning messages when the perl script process is run/forked 
from a background process without a controlling terminal) and these messages are 
never seen/logged.

I am wondering if I can set the console up as a source for syslog-ng on these 
machines without monitors?
