Mac OS X: bad permissions for log file

Following Apple guidelines, the location of Tor log file is incorrect (should be in /var/log/). A link is made from /var/log/tor to Library/Tor/var/log/tor.
However, permissions are wrong when compared to other system logs and application cannot read it. File should be owned by root:admin
and permissions set to -rw-r-----

I'm assuming when you refer to "" you mean the console log reader. Tor doesn't use OSX system logging, it writes

out its own log, hence the permission settings. I'll see what I can figure out to not break Tor logging nor Console log viewer.

I've added this for the branch to do list.

SVN revisions 9803 and 9804 commit this to the current -trunk branch of Tor. This should place a /var/log/tor.log with
proper permissions.
