[pkg-lighttpd] Bug#504319: lighttpd: Unnecessary restarts to rotate logs

Package: lighttpd
Version: 1.4.19-5
Severity: minor

The /etc/logrotate.d/lighttpd postrotate script uses the lighttpd
initscript with the 'reload' argument, which reloads the configuration
via a "graceful" SIGINT shutdown and restart.

(Note that the current SIGINT shutdown isn't actually particularly
graceful; see the other bug, #504315, that I just filed.)

The more correct approach would be to send a SIGHUP to lighttpd, which
causes it to just close and reopen the log files.
