Thanks to the 300 ppl who emailed me back the .debug examples. To get
all info logged and sorted by facility you can do:

kern.debug /var/adm/ext/kern.log
user.debug /var/adm/ext/user.log
mail.debug /var/adm/ext/mail.log
daemon.debug /var/adm/ext/daemon.log
auth.debug /var/adm/ext/auth.log
syslog.debug /var/adm/ext/syslog.log
lpr.debug /var/adm/ext/lpr.log
cron.debug /var/adm/ext/cron.log

to get everything to 1 file you can do

*.debug /var/adm/HUGE_FILE.log

Thanks to everyone who helped,
