I'm trying to compile syslog-ng 2.0.4 but fail to. It gives the
following errors:

if gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I..   -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include   -I/usr/local/include/eventlog   -D_BSD_SOURCE -D__BSD_SOURCE -D__FAVOR_BSD -DHAVE_NET_ETHERNET_H -DLIBNET_LIL_ENDIAN -D_GNU_SOURCE -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64  -O2 -march=pentium4 -fprefetch-loop-arrays -Wall -g -MT cfg-grammar.o -MD -MP -MF ".deps/cfg-grammar.Tpo" \
  -c -o cfg-grammar.o `test -f 'cfg-grammar.c' || echo './'`cfg-grammar.c; \
then mv -f ".deps/cfg-grammar.Tpo" ".deps/cfg-grammar.Po"; \
else rm -f ".deps/cfg-grammar.Tpo"; exit 1; \

What could be the cause? And how do I fix this?
