I'm not sure when/why the configuration file moved from /etc/syslog-ng/ 
previously.  My recollection is that there was a single configuration 
file so using /etc/syslog-ng.conf probably made sense then.

However, if you look at the configuration files now, they really need 
moved back.  /etc/modules.conf is just a really bad filename for a 
syslog-ng file...
