I'll second that. Sending SIGHUP or SIGINT to the server shuts it down
at this point. Restart signal should be HUP, not INT, IMHO. Graceful
restart should go on a SIGHUP.

That said, graceful restart still needs some work on BSD at least.

Rotatelogs is the right way to do log rotation, and really isn't germane
to the signal discussion. I'm changing it slightly now to fit into our
automatic rotate/fetch/analyze scheme here.
