We don't need an FAQ entry, we need a configure script that works :-)
I just tried to build 1.5.18 as follows, on NetBSD 1.5.2:

ran "autoconf"

ran "configure --prefix=/blah --enable-tcp-wrapper --with-libol=$PWD/../libol-3.3"

Got all sorts of grief - the first configure failed, with:

  config.status: cannot find input file: utils/Makefile.in

But re-iterating configure got farther, and then I get:

gcc  -g -O2 -Wall -I/var/home/elr/tmp/libol-0.3.3/src -D_GNU_SOURCE  -o
syslog-ng  main.o sources.o center.o filters.o destinations.o log.o

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Which shows -lwrap is still missing from LDFLAGS.  Feh.
