[syslog-ng] AMQP Module not present?

AMQP support is not enabled in EPEL due to packaging policy: no bundled
libraries are allowed. You can use my unofficial syslog-ng package for
fedora/RHEL from https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/czanik/syslog-ng38/
which has AMQP enabled and also is a more recent version. Note, that on
RHEL (not on CentOS) you also need to have the "optional" repo enabled in
order to be able to use it.
