You could "arrest" its functionality without removing the package by
editing /etc/logrotate.conf and commenting out the line
        include /etc/logrotate.d
as well as the entries for /var/log/wtmp and /var/log/btmp.  Then the
package would still be present and satisfy the dependencies but the
cron job would do nothing when it runs.  This would also make it easy
if you later decide you want to use logrotate.
