I got pglogd running on postgresql 8.1.4 a debian sarge installation. I had
to compile it myself and my apache2 configuration look like this.
LogFormat "%t %D %>s %b %m %v %h \"%U\" \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-agent}i\"
\"%r\" %l %u" pglogd
CustomLog "/var/log/apache2/pglogd_fifo" pglogd

For a logtime ago I made some programs that can dump the tables in a format
that awstats can read and compute.
