Comment 1 Elliot Lee 2002-08-26 12:42:13 UTC
At least with dhcp 3.0pl1, the -d option to dhcpd runs it in the foreground as well, not 

I would suggest that the right solution is to just use logrotate and logwatch to postprocess 
logs rather than trying to prevent stuff going into the logs. You can also muck around with 
syslog.conf if you want to reduce the general level of detail being logged by syslog.
