Question re logdir perms



Greetings all;

I would like to convert a utility so it can run as a normal user.  
However, this normal user has no write perms to /var/log and therefore 
cannot generate its log file.

Whats the normal procedure in this case, make that user a member of the 
group disk?, or make a subdir in /var/log this user then owns?

I can do either, the latter easier than trying to figure out chmod from 
its obtuse manpage.
