Aha! Embarrassed again! -d on logrotate is debug. I inserted it to see
what was happening, but forgot it does nothing but go through the
motions. Fcron was not guilty; I was.

As a note, fcron will not update paths in fcron.conf if you recompile.
Delete it first. For a normal install you might prefer to use:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var
- --with-boot-install=no --with-selinux=no
- --with-spooldir=/var/spool/fcron --without-sendmail
- --with-piddir=/var/run --with-fifodir=/var/tmp

I have the latest version running on 2 HLFS machines and it rotated my
logs, updated clamav and snort sigs, ran rkhunter, updates it's own
fcrontab, and ticks my watchdog, all without problem so far.
I still think it has too many bells and whistles for such a basic
utility, but if it proves reliable I am with it. Cheaper than beer.
