I suppose you are using the stable/ release branch. From what I see,
syslog_ng is only available from the current/ (formerly known as
unstable/) release branch. Others can likely verify this and add some
background information.

To see which release branch you are using, what does the following
command say?

    grep ^url /opt/csw/etc/pkg-get.conf \
        /etc/opt/csw/pkg-get.conf \

Btw., have you heard of pkgutil? It's a feature-rich alternative to
pkg-get and can be found at all mirror roots. 


Amongst many other features it offers a handy option for "remote
support" question like mine, -V, to display configuration settings. More
information can be found on the pkgutil website:
