If you want to use syslog then you'd better be sure that syslogd is
configured to do something useful with Postgres messages, and not just
drop 'em on the floor.

If you want to use stderr, look at the start script.  Some distros
provide Postgres start scripts that route the postmaster's stderr to
/dev/null --- either explicitly, or by using the infamous -S switch.
