segfaults are not logging into /var/log/messages

I'm using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5. In this whenever a user process crashes due to segmentaion faults , it was not logged in /var/log/messages. Even dmesg is also not showing any messages related to this.

Where as in another distributions(Cent OS 5) I've seen segfaults messages in /var/log/messages whenever my user process crashed.dmesg also showing the segfaults.

Is there any settings that to enabled so that it logs segfaults into /var/log/messages.

I cross checked /etc/syslog.conf of both the systems. Both are same and even /etc/sysconfig/syslog files

Please help me.
