Didn't know freeradius did syslog, cool.  Anyway, just tried it out on
freebsd 5.4.  In man radiusd, it shows that when using -l syslog, there is
also -g to specify the facility, where it also shows the default is

You will need to edit /etc/syslog.conf and add

daemon.*	/var/log/whateverfileyouwant

Touch /var/log/whateverfileyouwant and then restart syslogd and then
restart freeradius with at least -l syslog.  You could also use -g and
specify a different facility such as local[0-7].

Make sure to touch the file first before restarting syslogd.
