no logging with syslogd under FreeBSD

Hi all,

I'm trying to get logging with syslogd on a FreeBSD test machine to work. This is my minimal sample config with haproxy-1.2.17:

# cat /usr/local/etc/haproxy.conf



   log syslog debug

   user www
   group www

   listen http_proxy

     mode http
     clitimeout 150000
     srvtimeout 30000
     contimeout 2000
     option forwardfor
     balance roundrobin
     server node1 check weight 3
     server node2 check weight 3

syslogd is listening on the local machine:

# sockstat -4 | grep syslogd

root syslogd 17312 6 udp4 *:*

syslog facility is going to /var/log/messages

# grep syslog /etc/syslog.conf

*.notice;authpriv.none;syslog.*;kern.debug;;mail.crit;news.err /var/log/messages

But haproxy won't log anything. Any ideas?
