You are correct that Barnyard does not use log.c from Snort.  All of 
Barnyard's output systems use their own code.  Is there anything in 
particular that you are noticing that is different in the output from 
Barnyard and Snort that you want addressed?

There is not much written documentation on how Barnyard works since I 
have not been a documentation writing mood for a while.  But if you have 
any questions, I should be able to answer them (with regards to Barnyard 
that is) since I did write most of the code....
