I use syslog-ng as a system logger in the default runlevel and get something like this with /usr/bin/less as PAGER:

disi ... Wolfgang Friebel's lesspipe.sh works fine for such things.

Code:
% awk '/path.*HOME/' ~/.zprofile
    path=(${HOME}/bin $path)
% awk '/lesspipe/' ~/.zprofile
if (( $+commands[lesspipe.sh] )) ; then
    export LESSOPEN="|${commands[lesspipe.sh]} %s 2>&-"
% echo $LESSPIPE
|/home/khayyam/bin/lesspipe.sh %s 2>&-
% echo $LESS
-i -s -M -g -x4 -R -P%t?f%f :stdin .?pb%pb\%:?lbLine %lb:?bbByte %bb:-...

HTH & best ...
