solution based on audit-dispatcher from audit package

- syslogd can be run with "-D" option
- "-D" is followed by program, which is started as dispatcher
- dispatcher reads certain messages from stdin
- to specify, which messages are sent to dispatcher, man use "!dispatcher"
directive in /etc/syslog.conf
