another possibility is to have logs stored in a file by just changing 
'redirect_stderr' to 'on' and 'log_destination' to 'stderr'.

This way, with the default config, all logs sent to stderr will be written 
to 'log_directory' under the name 'log_filename', without having to change 
syslog.conf (you just need to change postgresql.conf).

Additionaly, I added 'log_rotation_size = 0' to have on log file per day.

Note that in that case, the log files won't be rotated, you'll need to 
check you don't store too many log file after a few months (as the number 
of files will increase every day).
