logread -f does not respond to SIGPIPE

when spawning an instance of logread -f from a script, if the parent
script dies/gets killed, logread never exits even though it gets sent
The general consensus seems to be to add ```signal(SIGPIPE,
interrupted);``` below line 99 above. This is not my idea, as my C
knowledge is minimal.
As a point of reference, tail -f does exist under the same circumstances.
