Summary

Patch to address issues described.

  1. /etc/periodic has special cases for zcat and bzcat, but not for zstd and xz which newsyslog also supports.
  1. newsyslog.conf manpage does not have a xref for zstd(1).
  1. usr.sbin/periodic/etc/monthly/200.accounting does not use temporary files appropriately.
  1. periodic.conf(5) refers to "daily accounting" and "monthly accounting" withouth being clear that "daily" means process accounting and "monthly" is login accounting.
Test Plan

Has been running on my system for 18 days now.
