Maybe it's related, but on FreeBSD 8.1 now I get an ugly error message 
on startup:

Error opening plugin module; module='afuser', 
error='/usr/local/lib/syslog-ng/libafuser.so: Undefined symbol "getutent"'

It looks scary, but luckily syslog-ng works fine on the machine.

Also, it would be nice to see this 3.3 patch also on 3.4: 
Without it there are some ugly messages at startup, and syslog-ng does 
not start if /dev/log is in the config file instead of the systemd

My openSUSE 3.4 packages are now updated to 3.4 alpha3 (see 
One can easily update to alpha3 also on FreeBSD, even before the 
syslog-ng-devel port is refreshed in ports. There are two easy steps:
- remove /usr/ports/sysutils/syslog-ng-devel/distinfo
- change the Makefile from alpha2 to alpha3
or a few more, if you want a proper pkg-plist :-) (version of 
libsyslog-ng is changed and a patterndb related xsd is added)
