This might be some kind of overlooking on your part: there is the
contrib/rhel-packaging directory which contains a much newer init
script than the old, deprecated one just under contrib.

I suggest using contrib/rhel-packaging. If you want to build your
own RPMs you can use syslog-ng.spec.bb which resides in the top
directory, this spec file use the proper files.

I think I've answered this as well :)
