this patch makes the cron jobs and supporting perl scripts optional

Description Natanael Copa 2008-02-02 10:59:02 UTC
The current /etc/cron.daily/syslog.cron uses the perlscript /usr/sbin/syslogd-listfiles and the debianutils utility 'savelog'. A user created a replacement cron script that don't need either perl nor debianutils.
