presumably a script dropped into /etc/cron.daily would do it.  Along the
lines of (nb: totally untested) ..?

#!/bin/sh

# mail address to send compressed logs to
TO=your@...

# the hex ID of your GPG key
KEY=0xaabbcc99

# which logs? *.0 will pick the most recently rotated set.  You
# can probably do better
LOGS="/var/log/*.0"

HOST=`cat /etc/conf.d/hostname`
TODAY=`(date +"%y%m%d")`
OUTFILE=/tmp/$HOST_$TODAY_logs.tbz2

# tar/compress
tar cjf $OUTFILE

# encrypt
gpg -r $KEY --encrypt-files $OUTFILE

# send. Not sure how you do this without mutt..
echo "Logs.." | mutt -s "$HOST logs for $TODAY" -a $OUTFILE.gpg $TO

# clean up
rm -f $OUTFILE $OUTFILE.gpg
