logrotate for Debian
Note that logrotate may not be the only log rotation program on a Debian
If sysklogd is installed, as was the case in older versions of Debian,
it uses its own log rotation scripts which can be found in
/etc/cron.daily/sysklogd and /etc/cron.weekly/sysklogd
Current installs use rsyslog, which does not perform its own log
rotation, but makes use of logrotate.
Logrotate prerotate/postrotate/firstaction/lastaction scripts are
currently executed by giving the whole script to "sh -c" thus:
execl("/bin/sh", "sh", "-c", script, "sh", logfn, NULL);
This might change in future versions.
