Hi,
libevtlog was developed by Balabit AFAIR as a library to add support for
rfc5424. Originally was created in a way that other software could use it
as well, but only syslog-ng is using it. As such we received requests to
merge it into syslog-ng: one less port/package to maintain.
This merge was done between syslog-ng version 3.10 and 3.11. Sorry for not
explaining this change along my patch.
Bye,

Peter Czanik (CzP) <peter.czanik@balabit.com>
