syslog problems, need help

Hi !

I am really going to need some help here.
I read all the documentation about syslog I have, but I still can't figure out 
how to make isc-dhcpd log to /var/log/dhcpd.log.
There's a recent article on onlamp about setting up a dhcpd server, I followed 
all the steps for configuring logging, but it does not work.
Here is what I have in my /usr/local/etc/dhcpd.conf:

log-facility local7;

And in my /etc/syslog.conf:

local7.*	/var/log/dhcpd.log

I, of course, created /var/log/dhcpd.log, restarted everything, but it does 
not log anything, nor in /var/log/messages or /var/log/dhcpd.log.

Do you have any idea ?
