You can invoke trickery-pokery; pipe directly to `logger` or whatever
script you prefer:

Or else, create a named pipe, write your logs to it (configure AccessLog
as if it were a real file), and write a Syslog-NG source blurb to pull
logs from it using pipe().  Should you want to try this, make sure
Syslog-NG is restarted _before_ apache so that the named pipe has a
reader (if not, apache will hang at start).
