Actually, I suspect you really have the problem backwards.. Rather than 
avoiding using syslog with SA, you're probably better off configuring 
syslog to put log messages where you want them.

Pick an unused local facility ie local5.

Configure SA log to that facility by using the -s parameter.
         spamd -s local5

Configure your syslogd to dump local5.* into a separate fie, and exclude it 
from your other logs.

here's a quick syslog.conf example:
         *.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none;local5.none; 
/var/log/messages
         local5.*; 
/var/log/spamassassin

Once you understand how to use syslog properly, you won't have problems 
like this. After all... syslog IS a pervasive element of unix.You can't 
avoid it forever. It's better to learn how to use it, rather than trying to 
figure out how to go around it all the time on a per-program basis.
