You really need two lines:

SetEnvIf Request_URI wpad\.dat dontlog=1
CustomLog file format env=!dontlog

Don't forget to amend 'file' and 'format' according to your
needs. Also note the different positioning of the '!'.

Then I need to replace the present line:
CustomLog /var/log/apache2/awstats.log combined
SetEnvIf Request_URI wpad\.dat dontlog=1
CustomLog /var/log/apache2/awstats.log combined env!=dontlog

away atm, will report

apache2 start complaines about format and stops, removing "!"
from "env!=dontlog" satisfies the "format" error but doesn't stop
the wpad.dat
entries :^(

and I misplaced the "!", corrected and testing

Hooray, this does work, but somewhat oddly...

/var/log/apache2/awstats.log still displays wpad.dat entries while
access_log does not. So I have changed awstats.conf to use
access_log and condition is corrected to my satisfaction.

but I am having difficulty stopping apache2 from logging to only
access_log and not awstats.log ??

Spoke too soon, excluding "wpad.dat" log entries did/does not work!

but the conf file does not abort apache2.

ps: where are apache log files defined besides:

Put the setenvif statement in a global config, e.g. httpd.conf. Then add
the env=!dontlog to every customlog statement where you don't want

In the 'setenvif', maybe remove the backslash or add a 2nd one. Without
the backslash, the regex becomes a little 'wider', but that can be
fine-tuned later.
