syslog-config needs to use rsyslog

Upstream bug:


It looks like rsyslog has finally replaced sysklogd. Since ubuntu-minimal depends on rsyslog, this isn't something we can work around.

rsyslog is available in every release we support, except for Etch, so we'll need to do something clever to create a package that configures sysklogd for older releases and rsyslog for newer ones.

I don't know if "older releases" should just be Etch, or anything pre-Karmic, or what.
