I like awstats - but it is not fundamentally very different from 
webalizer. (Just slightly prettier / more useful output in my opinion.)

I'm not aware of any genuine privacy concerns raised by the use of 
google analytics. If anyone wants to prevent their browsing being 
recorded by google analytics (or other similar services) they will 
already block it or have switched off javascript altogether.
