[icinga-users] where does the icinga-web 1.8.1 log go to when using configure option --with-log-dir=log

I upgraded icinga-web from 1.7.1 to 1.8.1.

I used the following configure arguments:

--prefix=/usr/local/icinga-web --with-web-user=apache 
--with-web-group=apache --with-web-path=/icinga-web 
--with-web-apache-path=/etc/httpd/conf.d --with-db-type=mysql 
--with-db-host=localhost --with-db-port=3306 --with-db-name=icinga_web 
--with-db-user=icinga_web --with-db-pass=******* 
--with-conf-dir=etc/conf.d --with-log-dir=log

I used --with-log-folder=log in my previous 1.7.1 configure, but for 
1.8.1 it gave me the following warning:

configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --with-log-folder

So, I checked the options and used --with-log-dir instead, assuming it 
had changed.

I installed with make upgrade (I previously updated icinga to 1.8.3 and 
updated the database with
mysql -p icinga < mysql-upgrade-1.8.0.sql, because I used 1.7.1 previously)

At the start screen (where I expect to see the login screen), I get this 

Uncaught AgaviLoggingException thrown:
Cannot open file "log/debug-2012-12-13.log", please check permissions on 
file or directory.

The logging is normally in /usr/local/icinga-web/log. The log files were 
written there with the previous release without problems.

The permissions are ok:

drwxr-xr-x. 2 apache apache 4096 Dec 13 17:01 log

The webserver runs as apache.

apache   18407 18405  0 16:48 ?        00:00:02 /usr/sbin/httpd

Selinux runs in permissive mode.

When su'ing to apache (temporary enabled for testing) I can create a 
file in that directory without a problem.

So my guess is that icinga-web tries to write to another location, 
because I did not specify a absolute path to the --with-conf-dir option.
However I do not know how to find out where that location is.

The classic UI seems to work OK.

Any advise on how to solve this is appreciated.
