You need the development files (typically in a package with a -devel
postfix). See the `packaging/rhel/syslog-ng.spec` file for a list of
dependencies (you may not need all of them, if you don't need all the
modules). The "BuildRequires" lines list the packages you need to
compile it.

Mind you, if you installed syslog-ng from your distribution, and all you
want is forward your apache logs from clients to a central server, you
may not need to compile from source.
