The old package you don't have to touch.  You may just build popa3d
from source, without producing a package out of it.  Just download the
original popa3d source tarball and follow the instructions in INSTALL.
Among the instructions it says to review and edit params.h, which you
need to do.  Allocate a unique facility to popa3d, say, LOG_LOCAL0.
Then use the newly built popa3d binary instead of the one that came
with Slackware (edit the inetd.conf line).  Finally, edit syslog.conf
to route the local0 facility wherever you like.

If this is still too complicated for you, then this list is probably
not the right place for further questions on how to setup logging as
that would be in no way specific to popa3d.
