There is no man page and the README.chklastlog doesn't mention any parameters...
chklastlog -l /var/log/lastlog -f /var/log/wtmp
Look, this is a tool used by chkrootkit that is not even in standard
path. So when you run it manually, it can be expected that you become
familiar with it first. chkrootkit runs it, too.
Please report the inaccurate README and the missing manual upstream
at http://www.chkrootkit.org and keep this bug closed. I've patched
chkrootkit for Fedora 7 to default to these two paths. But it is
more important to get such changes into upstream chkrootkit.
