passing -t to newsyslog

I want to pass -t to newsyslog so that archived log files have a useful 
date/time suffix vs an obnoxious numeric suffix.

Apparently freebsd uses /etc/crontab to launch newsyslog.  The manual 
tells me to not edit /etc/crontab [1]

How should I get my freebsd system to append date/time to archived 
logfile names?


Thank you,
