Hmm.  I don't have that problem on my Solaris/Intel box: we have several 
rotatelogs instances going.  Sure there's not something else going on?

% pgrep rotatelogs | wc -l
% uname -a
SunOS ... 5.9 Generic_117172-08 i86pc i386 i86pc
% ./httpd -v
Server version: Apache/2.0.51
% cc -v
cc: Sun WorkShop 6 update 2 C 5.3 Patch 111680-09 2003/05/18

I think I've heard of problems with gcc 3.x on Solaris/Intel causing similar 
problems for all apps.  (We use Forte here.)  I believe it was fixed in gcc 
3.4.0+.  But, that could be a red herring as well.  -- justin
