Each server needs to run orcallator.se.  Where orcallator.se is located
doesn't really matter.  You can NFS mount it, etc.  But in your case,
for security you may want to run it locally to avoid NFS.

You would use --with-ncsa-logfile=<file/path-of-webserver-logfile>.  You
can only use one log file format.

You'll have to run a separate orcallator.se for each separate log file you
have.  This is an unfortunate bug in orcallator.se.
