I have not heard of one yet. Not a big surprise since logwatch has its
roots in Linux [RedHat] and has only recently been branching out to
other OS's. 

Now having said that we've been talking about splitting the iptables
stuff from the kernel logs so maybe if this happens an iptables/ipfilter
generic service can be written. Might be worth it considering ipfilter
is so common in the BSD world [and now ships with Solaris 10]
