Please replace the rc script in the package by the attached one.

The issues with the rc script in the package are that the logdir is not created if it doesn't exist, and privoxy allows to changing the names of logdir and logfile in its config file which is not respected by this rc script.

The second issue may be not that serious as most users most likely keep the default.
The first issue prevents privoxy from being started at boot time on systems which mount /var/log to tmpfs, e.g. if the system is installed on a USB stick.

logfile doesn't need to be created if it's commented out in privoxy's config file.
jarfile is obsolete since a few privoxy releases.
