[syslog-ng] syslog-ng can not work with oracle backend

	Oracle driver was added to shared libraryes cache:

[root at vm-dc-syslog doc]# ldconfig -p|grep dbi
        libdbi.so.0 (libc6) => /usr/local/libdbi/lib/libdbi.so.0
        libdbi.so (libc6) => /usr/local/libdbi/lib/libdbi.so
        libdbdoracle.so (libc6) => /usr/local/libdbi-drivers/lib/dbd/libdbdoracle.so
[root at vm-dc-syslog doc]#

	Now I hardlinked oracle driver to /opt/syslog-ng/lib/dbd/, but without success. Is it from difference of libdbi versions - in rpm and 0.8.3 compiled by me?

	I tried to compile syslog-ng from tarball and with same libdbi as in oracle driver case, but 'configure' cancel his work with strange error:

checking for GLIB - version >= 2.10.1... no
*** A new enough version of pkg-config was not found.
*** See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/pkgconfig/
configure: error: Cannot find GLIB version >= 2.10.1: is pkg-config in path?


	Regards,

	Dmitry Sedov.
