Huge?  How huge?  I get only ~27 kB files (which i consider small in
comparison to fetchmail & procmail logs).

You could control the creation & size of the log files via
newsyslog(8) thru /etc/newsyslog.conf.  See the man page.

Or, you may be able to specify some option to xinit(1) and related
processes to not to create logs in the first place (i personally do
not know).
