kernel.org perhaps?
I dunno, the whole idea of an open source OS is that you should be able to get the source code.

Maybe even

"Syslog" is just a unix or BSD derived concept/protocol. So there are various historical implimentations of syslogd around. Most current linux distros do not use or offer it as a binary. After tiring of some problems with rsyslog (the newer system logger now used most places, I think), I recently starting using this one:

Infodrom Projects -- sysklogd (http://www.infodrom.org/projects/sysklogd/)

via. gentoo. It seems to work fine. The package is actually two daemons, syslogd and klogd (hence "sysklogd" I guess). If you look in the source tarball, you will find a syslog.c and syslogd.c. I'd also guess this is the implimentation used generally on linux before it was (perhaps prematurely) "depreciated". Have fun.
