Currently, the syslogd that is packaged for Owl is not able to run
programs.  That is one of the features I'd add once we (hopefully)
move to a more advanced syslogd (the most likely choice appears to be
forking Darren Reed's nsyslogd).

So, yes, you'd have to use log file monitoring tools or have syslogd
write into a pipe, -- which is supported, see syslog.conf(5), -- and
have your script read messages off the pipe and e-mail them.
