The deviance is typically defined as -2*(log likelihood).
However, glm output may not be giving you the absolute log-likelihood --
in these applications it's often easier to drop various multiplicative
constants that appear in the likelihood, which become additive constants
in the log-likelihood or deviance, which don't affect any of the
statistical conclusions of the analysis.
