mgetty-sendfax in Redhat 5.9 does not install
/var/log/sendfax.log but it *does* install
/etc/logrotate.d/sendfax, which means the system tries to
rotate a non-existent log file. This results in the
following error:

errors occured while rotating /var/log/sendfax.log

stat of /var/log/sendfax.log failed: No such file or

No harm is done, but the error gets mailed to root every 24
hours, which can get annoying after a few days.

The obvious workaround is to create the proper log file
manually. But the mgetty-sendfax rpm should do that.

log file handling is cleaned up in 1.1.14-7 and later.
