This may be some uncommon behaviour of squid/squidgaurd that selinux policy currently does not support (when confirmed that squidgaurd indeed creates a lnk file in /var/log for some reason , then implement policy to allow logrotate to rename the link (and what else it may need to do with the lnk_file.)
