Although that might be the actual requirement, the provided RPM does not 
reflect this

% rpm -ql --requires -p syslog-ng-3.35.1-2.el7.x86_64.rpm | grep -i glib


And i do not htink that version 2.32 is sufficient.
At the time of the install I am running an ansible playbook that starts 
with a minimal image of RHEL7

% cat /etc/redhat-release
Red hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.3 (Maipo)

which contains the glib2 2.46

Installing the latest syslog-ng does not upgrade glib2
One of the major purposes of RPM is to ensure that a package can not be 
installed if the required components are not installed. The glib2 2.56 
available at this point, so should have been upgraded to ensure that 
syslog-ng could run.

The error is

/usr/sbin/syslog-ng: symbol lookup error: 
/usr/lib64/libsyslog-ng-3.35.so.0: undefined symbol: 

The lowest version of the glib2 package available on RHEL7 that allows 
syslog-ng 3.35 to start is glib2-2.54.2-2.el7.x86_64
