[packman] mythtv-backend packaging issue (minor)

Greetings! I've found that the logrotate file that ships with mythtv-
backend wants to place old log files into /var/log/mythtv/old, however,
this directory has not been added to the packaging (presumably it's
missing a %dir entry).  This prevents logrotate from running to
Thank you (all of you!) for your hard work! If there is any more
information you need or assistance I can provide, please let me know.
Details are below:
