Oops, you're right.  It used to, though, back in 2002, and that's what I
found on my system...  Apparently, nothing else attempts to create
/var/log/wtmp, though.  I wonder why Chuck decided to ditch the
postinstall script?  In any case, as I said before, /var/log/wtmp should
be created ('touch'ed, most likely) by the packages that need it.
