How about:

class null_log
       template< typename T >
       null_log & operator<<( const T & )
          return *this;

null_log log;

#define BOOST_LOG(id) log

This should work and a good compiler should be able to optimize away the
log output, leaving only the small footprint of the global variable. It
also has the advantage of being multi-line compatible:

BOOST_LOG(dbg) << "message: "
    << foobar;
