Synopsis: SIGXFSZ when log file > 2gb

Apache can not "force a rotate" since it is up to the admin to configure how and when they
want logs rotated.  It is also not the case that all systems have such 2 gig file size limits.
And Apache can not magically reopen logfiles without a server restart due to the server architecture.

It is really up to the admin to make sure that they have some type of log rotation in place
so that log files don't get too big.  There is no "proper" way Apache can handle this condition;
it is a fatal error on the part of the admin to let a logfile hit  maximum filesize limit...
