I haven't touched the pipe support. However I think pipe() has no problems
on Debian, as the following typescript shows:

balabit:~/src/syslog-ng-1.5/src$ cat syslog-ng.conf

source src { pipe("log.input"); unix-stream("log"); internal(); };

destination dst { pipe("log.output"); };

log { source(src); destination(dst); };

balabit:~/src/syslog-ng-1.5/src$ ls -l log.input log.output
prw-r--r--    1 bazsi    bazsi           0 May 30 13:45 log.input|
prw-------    1 bazsi    bazsi           0 May 30 13:45 log.output|

balabit:~/src/syslog-ng-1.5/src$ ./syslog-ng -dvf syslog-ng.conf &

As you can see both messages can be read from the output fifo. We're
definitely using pipe() sources on production systems.
