Actually, the sm_syslog() function in sendmail/conf.c *does* call the
libc syslog(), and has for quite some time.  sm_syslog() exists primarily
as a wrapper for working around busticated vendor syslogs.

I didn't see any mention of what libc Fran's sendmail is linked against, and
thus I can't rule out the possibility that the syslog() call in libc isn't
itself buggy.
