change that to

local0.*                                        /var/log/pgsql.log

(lowercase, also a .log suffix is more standard)
make sure the /var/log/pgsql.log file exists (create it with vi),
and then change its permissions to smth like
-rw-------  1 root  wheel  109274 30 Μαϊ 09:00 /var/log/pgsql.log

This works in my FreeBSD system, although with 7.4.*, i dont have any 8.3.1 handy at the moment.
