They don't exist by default any more, but if you *create*
/etc/{daily,weekly,monthly}.local, then they will get run as part of the
appropriate periodic tasks.  See:


     grep _local /etc/defaults/periodic.conf

However, why wouldn't you just setup /etc/newsyslog.conf to rotate your
logfiles?  Much simpler and cleaner.
