Description David Muir Sharnoff 1995-01-14 04:20:02 UTC
	In /etc/crontab, there is a commented-out call to /usr/bin/newsyslog.

	Given the goal of making FreeBSD easy for people to setup (cf. new
	install scripts), /usr/bin/newsyslog should be un-commented.

From-To: open->closed

1) There is no such program as `newsyslog' in FreeBSD. 
2) This functionality is handled differently by the daily/weekly/monthly 
scripts (which arguably ought to use a log-rotation utility, but in 
the absence of one aren't about to change).
