Description of problem:
/etc/logrotate.d/psacct script is incorrect because the path to accton is
not correct and because /var/log/pacct is not recreated before the
postrotate step. As a result, /var/log/pacct grows without bound

# Logrotate file for psacct RPM
create 0664 root root
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. accton /var/log/pacct
2. note unbounded growth in /var/log/pacct over time
This problem is present on a clean complete Red Hat 7.1 install using
Looking into this...
This has been fixed for a while now..
closing bug as fixed in -14 release.
