while upgrading net-misc/openssh I saw the einfo

I must admit that at the time I read this I wasn't aware about the fact, that "/var/empty" is a default chroot directory for processes which don't require file access for example.
Shouldn't we create an input socket in "/var/empty/dev/log" per default?
E.g. placing a file in "/etc/rsyslog.d" or just add a line like
to the the default rsyslog.conf file?
What do you think?
I agree with your proposal, this would fit in bug #501982 for 7.6.x releases !
Fixed on newer releases thx to you ! :)
