Anyone have a fix for syslog-ng package.

PFSense Version
2.3.2-DEVELOPMENT (amd64)
built on Mon Jun 20 18:45:57 CDT 2016
FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p5

The system is on the latest version.


Error that comes up when the service is enabled.
Syslog-ng syntax test failed: [2016-06-20T21:18:34.611197] WARNING: Configuration file format is too old, syslog-ng is running in compatibility mode Please update it to use the syslog-ng 3.7 format at your time of convinience, compatibility mode can operate less efficiently in some cases. To upgrade the configuration, please review the warnings about incompatible changes printed by syslog-ng, and once completed change the @version header at the top of the configuration file.;

Confirmed this is still an issue on 2.3.1-RELEASE-p5.  Even tried changing the header in /usr/local/etc/syslog-ng.conf to a higher version number and the same error is generated.

2.3.1-RELEASE-p5 (i386)

FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p3

Based on lack of responses, I'm assuming this won't get fixed.
