It's not hardwired into LaTeX. it's hardwired into the basic TeX engine 
on which LaTeX is based., and a TeX engine without a log file could not 
be called TeX.  I don't know which operating system you are using, but 
if it is Microslush, you could add log files to a CClean list and use 
that occasionally.  For myself, I have often been very glad of the 
existence of log files, even though I ignore them most of the time.
