sorry rodrigo -- i guess i may have misled you.

i see that there are other directories mentioned in that file
which aren't created at boot either.  perhaps i misunderstood what
that file is for, though reading rc.sysinit i would have thought
i was right.

in any case, perhaps you can simply add a "mkdir -p /var/log/lighttpd"
to the lighttpd startup script.  seems like the easiest solution.
