Is your problen that the logfile is vast, and you need the space?  
Else why can't you just discard it once it has been made?

On Unix-like systems you might (before running LaTeX) make the logfile a
symbolic link to /dev/null, as in

ln -sf /dev/null myfile.log; latex myfile

I just tried it, and my log disappeared into the void, as desired.
