syslog-ng, as the name shows, is a syslogd replacement, but with new
functionality for the new generation. The original syslogd allows
messages only to be sorted based on priority/facility pairs; syslog-ng
adds the possibility to filter based on message contents using regular
expressions. The new configuration scheme is intuitive and powerful.
Forwarding logs over TCP and remembering all forwarding hops makes it
ideal for firewalled environments.

- update to 2.1.4
- enabling mixed linking to compile only non-system libs statically
- lots of packaging updates to be able to build on RHEL4,5, Fedora9+ and be
parallel-installable with rsyslog and/or sysklogd on those platforms
- removing BR for flex & byacc to try to prevent files from being regenerated
- fixing build error with cfg-lex.l and flex 2.5.4
- Fixed a possible DoS condition triggered by a destination port unreachable
ICMP packet received from a UDP destination.  syslog-ng started eating all
available memory and CPU until it crashed if this happened.
- Fixed the rate at which files regular were read using the file() source.
- Report connection breaks as a write error instead of reporting POLLERR as
the write error path reports more sensible information in the logs.
