Not that I'm aware of.

And it works?  Are you willing to become package maintainer of
these packages for the Cygwin net distribution?  See for a discussion what to do.

Calling the syslog(3) functions in a Cygwin application
doesn't use syslogd at all.  Actually, syslogd is pretty
useless in Cygwin which is the reason I ripped it out of
the inetutils binary package.

Calling syslog(3) functions emits always messages in the NT
event log on NT/2K/XP and always writes to C:\\CYGWIN_SYSLOG.TXT
on 9x/Me.
