Compiling varnishstat, varnishtop, and varnishhist
I noticed recently that on one of my Debian systems, my installation of varnish did not have any of its monitoring utilities installed.
/usr/local/bin was missing

# aptitude install libncurses5-dev # cd varnish-2.1.3/ # make clean && ./configure # make && make install
This time it compiled all of the extra tools and placed them in
