I don't know what all the fuss is about. The log (singular; it's a
file, not a directory) is going to go in whatever file you've
specified with the "$log" setting in the majordomo.cf file.
$log should be a _file_, not a directory.
This file needs to be writable by whatever uid/gid "wrapper" is
setuid/setgid to, so that Majordomo can write to it.
The directory containing this file also needs to be writable by
whatever uid/gid "wrapper" is setuid/setgid to, so that Majordomo can
create a lock file for the log.
