cron.daily runs a script sysklogd to rotate the logs in /var/log with
savelog. I have added some logs to the defaults, but one of them doesn't
get rotated.  Is there a way to reconfigure what happens with this script:

#! /bin/sh

# sysklogd      Cron script to rotate system log files daily.
#               If you want to rotate logfiles daily, edit
#               this script.

cd /var/log
for LOG in syslog
   if [ -f $LOG ]; then
      savelog -g adm -m 640 -u root -c 4 $LOG >/dev/null

# Restart syslogd
/etc/init.d/sysklogd reload

It may be obvious, but I am a bit bash-challenged.
