Syslog-Ng on NetBSD after GSoC changes for RFC5424 Changes

For the sake of the mailing list archives / google searches, the following flags() argument is needed to parse the new message format from local socket:

    source src { unix-dgram("/var/run/log" flags(syslog-protocol) );
              unix-dgram("/var/run/logpriv" perm(0600));
              internal();  file("/dev/klog");  };

Also, syslog-ng v. 3 or greater is needed (1.6x in pkgsrc, 2.x in pkgsrc-wip)

If/when Other*BSD imports the IETF syslog support, the same will be true there.
