Have you tried just writing a program in script or something to read the 
logfile for changes, make sure each log is in the right format and then 
send it over the network to syslog-ng the way a normal network logger would?

Although there is an easier way as well. Try installing syslog-ng on 
that machine, define a source as the file and then define the 
destination as the remote logserver. That should do it.
