The bug is that in /etc/defaults/daily.conf, the variable is set to "",
which fails the "-z" check in /etc/daily.  So /etc/defaults/daily.conf
should get adjusted to set to YES.

Beyond that, I don't see what it's reasonable for /etc/daily to complain
about the variables value - either it's YES/yes and it checks, or  not
and it prints "skipping check".
