No I'm not.

After installing the syslog-ng package you will have two logrotate files
  1) /etc/logrotate.d/syslog (owned by sysklogd)
  2) /etc/logrotate.d/syslog-ng (owned by syslog-ng)
But in order for logrotate to do its work I comment every line
on the first one (/etc/logrotate.d/syslog) as logrotate refuses to
run if a logfile is mentioned more than once.

The syslog-ng configuration mimics the default syslog configuration
shipped by Red Hat (ie: same log destinations).
