Openfire not logging in the logs on Linux systems

Description

There were a number of reports about Openfire not logging anything since 4.3.0 upgrade from 4.2.3 (using deb package). So far no reports from CentOS users. Seems to work fine on Windows.

Environment

Ubuntu, Debian, Mint

This is a guess but in a number of places we specify "-Dlog4j.configurationFile=<some path>" - my suspicion is that this was missed from whatever file is used to startup Openfire on a Debian based system - possibly build/debian/openfire.init.d

The problem does not exist in https://www.igniterealtime.org/downloadServlet?filename=openfire/openfire-4.3.0-1.x86_64.rpm (logging is fine with that installer)

The RPM installer is for Redhat based distro's - Debian, Ubuntu, etc. use https://www.igniterealtime.org/downloads/download-landing.jsp?file=openfire/openfire_4.3.0_all.deb
