Sounds slightly beyond the mandate of newsyslog(8).   Although instead
of a path-to-PID, a glob to pass to pkill(8) -HUP ${glob} would be on my
NFR list.

At that point, logrotate(8) may seem appealing (or a custom solution):

              The  lines  between postrotate and endscript (both of which must
              appear on lines by themselves) are executed after the  log  file
              is  rotated.  These  directives  may only appear inside of a log
              file definition.  See prerotate as well.

For all your non-posix-signal-honoring-daemons out there.
