Sweet, easy to configure program--quite customizable. No BSD-style 
documentation, though ;-)

Contrary to the docs, this is the proper way to run it from a script/cron:

/usr/local/bin/savelogs --config=/usr/local/etc/savelogs.conf

i.e. don't specify logs to rotate from the command line (as they're 
specified in the config file)
