That variant is *ONLY* supported on win32.. ARe you using a windows box? If 
not, remove the host statement. Also, make sure LOG_AUTH and LOG_ALERT are 
in caps, not lower case.

If you need to forward your logs to a different system on a unix box, 
configure your syslog.conf to forward the messages to the approprate 
server. How this is done depends on what syslogd you are using. Consult 
your manpages on syslog.conf.
