Perhaps you can configure or patch webalizer to be more generous in
what it accepts as a log line?  I think analog for example is

rsync automatically adding the date when writing to a file is kind of
dumb, but there you go.

Perhaps you could write a little Perl script to strip off the first
few fields?
