All versions after 3.2 don't work on Cygwin anymore because the
syslog-ng developers introduced a module loader mechanism incompatible
with Cygwin.

Updating to a newer version requires considerable porting effort.

If somebody has fun to take over syslog-ng maintainership and work
with upstream on a modernised Cygwin port, please feel free.
