NetBSD localhost 9.2 NetBSD 9.2 (GENERIC) #0: Wed May 12 13:15:55 UTC 2021  
Recently I tested syslog-ng on NetBSD. The sysutils/syslog-ng port in pkgsrc is outdated (version 3.17 instead of the currently available 3.34). My colleagues fixed a bug I found (the tcp() source now works as expected), and I helped to upstream a patch from pkgsrc, so system() source automatically configures now log sources on NetBSD. I even prepared an update for pkgsrc. Tested in a virtual machine on AMD64 running NetBSD 9.2. My update is available at I'm not sure if it complies with all pkgsrc rules, but it works. And this version of syslog-ng works a lot better than 3.17, currently available in pkgsrc.

Could you check my update and commit it to pkgsrc?

install syslog-ng 3.17 from pkgsrc
update sysutils/syslog-ng based on the update I provided.
