simple log rotation

Since I have a problem reported in PR 271287, it has been difficult to find out
what goes wrong because the log file is overwritten each time "etcupdate" runs,
only some subcommands append to the log file.
I suggest 2 solutions:
1) always append and let newsyslog rotate the log file
2) add some simple log rotation to etcupdate (patch attached)
