[syslog-ng]Central Logging

I am setting up central logging for all my DMZ systems which are all Sun
boxes running Solaris 2.6 or Solaris 8.

What I want to achieve is to logg stuff locally as standard syslog did
previously and in addition forward all syslog data to a central host to
be stored identically in a subdirectory /var/log/$HOST/ - so I'll have
files such as /var/log/foo/messages, /var/log/foo/syslog,
/var/log/foo/authlog, etc.

Has anyone done this in a way that doesn't demand a humungous config
file on the central host with near identical settings for each remote
