Hmm, didn't we do this one recently already? Anyway, there isn't a cygwin
port. The canonical logrotate sources live at
I didn't try very hard but I did download it and it built and passed most of
its self-tests (failing on #12, "check rotation into a directory given as a
relative pathname", and leaving the remaining two tests untested). I had to
specify "CC=gcc-4" (when building) and "PREFIX=/usr" (when installing) on the
make command-line but no source changes were necessary. So, you might like to
give it a go and see if a homebrew version works for you, but YMMV and there
are at least some problems, I don't know how serious.
