Deleting the log files shouldn't cause any great problems.  You may have 
to create some directories, but most logging is done (or should be done) 
by syslog, which should create any missing files and dirs 
automagically.  (I have not actually tried this, mind you.  But 
typically logging just sort of happens.)

Have you tried restarting the machine?  Any specific problems?
