Just came across the same thing myself. The tool you are looking for is
SuSEconfig. The command 'SuSEconfig --module syslog-ng' will parse your
syslog-ng.conf.in and generate /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf.
I can't immediately find a way of getting SuSEconfig to generate a list of
available modules, but I'll let you know if I come across anything.
And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, for if you hit a man
with a plowshare, he's going to know he's been hit.
