I much prefer to have some kind of logging in the default config file,
so users have a place to look if something doesn't work. Currently the
"syslog" plugin is used if it was built, otherwise the "logfile" plugin
The default log level depends on the configure option "--enable-debug".
It is "debug" if debugging was enabled and "info" otherwise. This
assumes that if the user enables debugging, he actually requires
debugging output. [*]
How would you feel about an additional configure option,
"--with-loglevel=info" which would override this default behavior? Would
that help with your package?

Patch or pull request, either way is fine. If you already have a Git
repository available, pulling from it may be a tad easier.
[*] I know that this doesn't hold true for packagers and I'm sorry for
the inconvenience, but I think that this is a reasonable assumption
for Joe Everyuser.
