I have updated syslog-ng to the latest stable release 3.2.1.

The upstream package needed a few minor patches.

The package now comes with a postinstall script and an enhanced
/bin/syslog-ng-config file in order to allow to change the syslog-ng file
layout to be more aligned to the typical Linux layout.  Note especially
that there's now a directory /etc/syslog-ng which contains multiple
configuration files, rather than a single config file /etc/syslog-ng.conf.

The new postinstall script moves the old /etc/syslog-ng.conf file to
/etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf.  However, please note that there are some
important changes in syslog-ng which may result in problems when using
an old configuration file.  For more information, please refer to the
online syslog-ng Admin Guide here:

Another important change was to re-libtoolize and autoreconf the
source directory.  This is required to successfully build all the
new shared library modules for syslog-ng on Cygwin.

All required patches and changes have been reported upstream.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
