syslogd-listfiles looks in /etc/syslog.conf for lines containing
"*.*" to decide what needs to be rotated daily.  So in the line for
/var/log/syslog, replace the "*.*" with the equivalent "*.debug".
(This logs all facilities with priority "debug" and higher.  "debug"
is the lowest priority, though, so it matches all of them.)  This
doesn't seem too gross a change.
