3 possibilities In order of increasing difficulty:
You could put a "logger" command in /etc/csh.login and/or /etc/profile.
The "login" command also seems to call at least one other command for
each successful login "mail -t". I suppose you could replace "mail" with a
command that detected the "-t" and both checked for mail and invoked the
"logger" command to send a login info message to syslogd.
PAM could also be configured to log logins.
