Probably you can use logrotate instead of rotatelogs. From the man:

       olddir directory
              Logs are moved into  directory  for  rotation.  The
              directory  must  be  on the same physical device as
              the log file being rotated.  When  this  option  is
              used  all  old versions of the log end up in direcĄ
              tory.  This option may be overridden by the  nooldĄ
              dir option.

But, to be exact, you not always can move logs to another dir. It
depends on whether your /log is on the same physical device as
/usr/local/apache/logs (usually not).
