Suppressing "Limiting icmp unreach response" log messages

Install syslog-ng 2.x from ports.

source src { unix-dgram("/var/run/log");
             unix-dgram("/var/run/logpriv" perm(0600));
             internal(); file("/dev/klog"); };

Kernel messages from /dev/klog get mapped to "user.notice" syslog, so:
 log { source(src); filter(f_user); filter(f_notice); 
   destination(mailadmin); };

Or the destionation of your choice.
