There is no current means to point at a "server.xml" file that is not
under "$CATALINA_HOME/conf", but that has nothing to do with where log
files go (except by default) -- in your <Logger> elements, just add a
"directory" attribute.  The default value is "logs" (relative paths are
resolved against $CATALINA_HOME), but you can use an relative or absolute
path to a directory that you would like.
