[syslog-ng] Can't get kernel messages on FreeBSD

Hi all.

I installed syslog-ng3.3.6_3 using ports on FreeBSD9.0-RELEASE(i386).
I can't get kernel messages by default configuration.
ex. em0: link state changed to DOWN
    em0: link state changed to UP

But, I can see them using 'cat /dev/klog' after stoppedsyslog-ng. So, I
think syslog-ng can't get kermel messages from /dev/klog.

How to get kernel messages using syslog-ng?
Please give me a hint or something!

* /etc/rc.conf

* /usr/local/etc/syslog-ng.conf
source s_kern { file("/dev/klog"); };
filter f_kern { facility(kern); };
destination d_kern { file("/var/log/kern.log"); };
log { source(s_kern); filter(f_kern); destination(d_kern); };
