[syslog-ng] syslog-ng open source edition for intel based x86_64 machine

I don't think yum cares about the names of rpm files - all of the important details, including the target architecture, are embedded in in the file, in the rpm header and yum uses that, regardless of the name of the file.

Does your build system support creating source rpm's? The main problem
with the naming scheme as I understand it is that yum do not like the
amd64 arch. So if you could gernerate source rpm's it would be pretty
easy to rebuild.
