At, we have a convention of using timestamps in
logfile names. Currently, we have hard-coded logic
in kerberos to construct filenames of the form
<utility>.log.YYYYMMDD . This is obviously very site
specific, yet we'd rather not maintain site specific logic.
It would be nice if log file names could be expanded via strftime.

Run any kerberos daemon more than once. Watch it reuse
the same log file.

Compile-time fix, apply the patch in
configure with new --enable-logfile-by-date .
Change krb5.conf [logging] stanza, log file lines
to read like: FILE:/var/log/krb5kdc.log.%Y%m%d .
Restart daemons. Now see new style logfile names.
