Can't do that.  The logDir member is declared like this:

  qemud/qemud.h:    char logDir[PATH_MAX];

which made me see why it was using PATH_MAX.
and we always want to check for buffer overrun.
so here's what I'll do:

diff --git a/qemud/qemud.c b/qemud/qemud.c
index f8c3c97..d9d7ce3 100644
--- a/qemud/qemud.c
+++ b/qemud/qemud.c
@@ -766,8 +766,10 @@ static int qemudInitPaths(struct qemud_server *server,
             goto snprintf_error;
     }

-    if (snprintf(server->logDir, PATH_MAX, "%s/.libvirt/log",
-                 dir_prefix) >= PATH_MAX)
+    if (snprintf(server->logDir, sizeof (server->logDir),
+                 (uid == SYSTEM_UID ? "%s/log/libvirt" : "%s/.libvirt/log"),
+                 (uid == SYSTEM_UID ? LOCAL_STATE_DIR : dir_prefix))
+        >= sizeof (server->logDir))
         goto snprintf_error;

     ret = 0;
