syslog-ng not logging

I've just installed syslog-ng from ports on 7.0B4.

I put the following into /etc/rc.conf

syslog_ng_config="-u daemon"

And my syslog-ng.conf file is very similar to the example one (plus  
some special destinations for things that come in via UDP).

I killed the syslog process and started

  /usr/local/etc/rc.d/syslog-ng start

and everything seemed to start up just fine.  No errors reported, runing

    rc.d/syslog-ng status

tells me that it is running, as does ps.

But nothing has logged anywhere, including to console, since the time  
I killed the system syslogd.

Any suggestions of where I should look to debug this?
