I want "-t" to be passed when newsyslog is run hourly... not when it is
run once when the system boots for the purpose of creating log files.
Per "man rc.conf":
newsyslog_enable is used to run newsyslog one time at boot to create
missing log files. newsyslog_enable does not cause newsyslog to
newsyslog is run periodically via en entry in /etc/crontab. newsyslog
is called without any arguments.
