That might be a good idea, now that so much stuff is configure-driven.
Actually I'd be inclined to leave configure producing config.h, and have
config.h #include a separate file that contains the non-machine-handled
config symbols.   "siteconfig.h", maybe.

Re the original complaint,

>> change configure to enable USE_SYSLOG if syslog facilities are available.

I do *not* think that configure should automatically turn on USE_SYSLOG
just because it can find a syslog() subroutine.  Maybe the admin wants
the log sent to syslog and maybe he doesn't.  I'd be happier with adding
a configure command line switch, say "--enable-syslog".
