 varnishd won't start without the group 'nogroup' existing, even when you
 specify -g on the commandline.

 this is my command line: /usr/local/sbin/varnishd -a :80 -f
 /etc/varnish/default.vcl -T -t 120 -w 1,1000,120 -s
 file,/c01/varnish/varnish_storage.bin,40% -u varnish -g varnish -n
 /var/varnish -P /var/run/varnish.pid

 and when i didn't have 'nogroup' in /etc/group, it gave me an error
 stating so. when i added 'nogroup' to /etc/group, it started up with user
 varnish and group varnish.
