No, you didn't... That section contains information about the
Premium Edition only.

1. mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/syslog-ng
2. create the syslog-ng.conf configfile in the directory above
 (you can find examples in the contrib directory, however please
 note that the syslog door location has changed so instead of
 /etc/.syslog_door use /var/run/syslog_door)
3. start syslog-ng: /usr/local/sbin/syslog-ng

There isn't a Solaris package created by default, so pkginfo
won't display anything unless you download and install the
precompiled Soalris package. AFAIK you need to have a support
contract to access the binaries.
