The solution is quite simple actually:
here's what i've found in /etc/logfiles (SuSE 6.4)
#
# This file tells cron.daily, which log files have to be watched
#
# File max size mode ownership service
# (reload if
changed)
and then it goes something like:
/var/log/httpd/access_log +4096k 644 root.root apache

So you could add to /var/log/messages, or whatever you use, syslogd
