the listener log can be changed from within lsnrctl by using

lsnrctl> set log_file <new_name>

or - if you want to use the same name -

lsnrctl> set logging off
... rename listener.log on OS level
lsnrctl> set logging on

Works in any operating system, AFAIK. No need to stop the listener for this.
