Right now there is no option in newsyslog which gives you
that.  There is a PR (problem-report) which has asked for
this, and it is on the list of things I plan to do with
newsyslog.  Actually, I had planned to have that update
done by now, but I had a few months of bad luck with some
of my freebsd machines.  (mostly hardware-related bad luck).
