Well, I don't think that works:

# /sbin/syslog-ng -r
/sbin/syslog-ng: invalid option -- r
Usage: syslog-ng [options]
Accept and manage system log messages

-s, --syntax-only Only read and parse config file
-d, --debug Turn on debugging messages
-v, --verbose Be a bit more verbose
-F, --foreground Don't fork into background
-f <fname>, --cfgfile=<fname> Set config file name,
-V, --version Display version number (syslog-ng 1.6.5)
-p <fname>, --pidfile=<fname> Set pid file name,
-C <dir>, --chroot=<dir> Chroot to directory
-u <user>, --user=<user> Switch to user
-g <group>, --group=<group> Switch to group
