I'm not sure if this is relevant, but this is currently in that file:

  AIX (unknown revision)

  AIX does support STREAMS, but its log transport doesn't use it. As it
  seems /dev/log is a simple SOCK_DGRAM type unix socket, so it works using:

      source stdlog { unix-dgram("/dev/log"); };

I would appreciate if you could confirm this, so I could update the file 
to be less vague.
