where can I find the ipfw logs on Snow Leopard? it is not in /var/log/system.log

and this file is completely empty

While /private/var/log/ipfw.log is also listed in (even though it's also empty for me), some messages regarding firewall activity are stored in /private/var/log/appfirewall.log. Maybe that's what you're looking for.
