That's the correct file. Uncomment anything you want to change.

If you want to use that file you could add "-l /var/log/pgsql" to the
pg_ctl start command in your PG startup script.

Yes, one goes to a file and the other to syslog ;-)
I'd recommend syslog on the whole, since you don't normally have to
worry about rotating logfiles when you use syslog.
