I've started getting emails like this for the last few days after a 
system build.

newsyslog: can't open pid file: /var/run/syslog.pid: No such file or directory
newsyslog: log /var/log/maillog.0 not compressed because daemon(s) not notified

In looking at the syslog rc file, I see pidfile="/var/run/syslog.pid" 
even though the file in that folder is now /var/run/syslogd.sockets.
The second error I am a little less sure about.  Googling I saw either 
inadequate syslogd exec privilege, or a potential relation to the first
