It does log errors to syslog.  The informational message when
reaching the end of the disk is discarded with default syslog.conf,
but presumably would be logged if syslog were so configured.

In the course of fixing what now appears to be the underlying cause
of and, I have
gotten much more familiar with diskcheckd :)  The patch I've sent
for testing touches only the code and the manpage, but once that
is verified I'll send a larger patch that also updates the Makefile
(and one other).
