Yeah, this should give you a start :

/wwwhome/*/logs/www.*.log /wwwhome/*/logs/www.*.err
    rotate 7
    create 640 root adm
        /etc/init.d/apache reload > /dev/null

The last thing you have to do is write a script that will compress the
files using the "zip" program of your choice and call it from the
postrotate script.  You'll have to handle the delaycompress feature
yourself in that script.
