There is: the default logging simply goes to runsvdir's stdout. You can
connect that in /etc/runit/2 to wherever you like.

I couldn't test easily whether openvpn logs to stdout or stderr, but
that's a common pitfall: runit expects logging output on stdout. Thus
a <servicename>/run file should usually include a "exec 2>&1" line to
ensure logs actually go to the log service.
