Are you using the popa3d package included with Slackware or did you
build popa3d yourself?

Well, currently the log facility and priority popa3d uses are defined
at compile time in params.h.  If you're using the distribution-provided
package you need to either get the distribution to apply the change or
switch to building popa3d from source yourself.

Where messages for a given facility/priority are routed is of course
specified in /etc/syslog.conf.

On some systems, the logging daemon (syslogd or equivalent) is able to
route messages based on the ident ("popa3d" in this case).  There you
wouldn't have to apply any configuration changes to popa3d itself.
