#1394: Add conf.d/*.vcl directive to config system

 I looked through the history and didnt find mention of it but i assume
 this was a possible design decision because it seem like pretty low
 hanging fruit.

 Using varnish in a package managed environment and would really appreciate
 the ability to systematically add varnish configs with a
 /etc/varnish/conf.d/YOUR_FILE_NAME_HERE.vcl directory.

 The base default.vcl config file doesnt even have to leverage it if you
 dont like but there are a good number of requests for it out the
 downstream in Debian, Fedora, etc as well.


 I think the paradigm is well known enough but it very simply allows other
 packages to add their own configuration logic without the need to append
 or otherwise edit a file that has to be shared across multiple packaging
 systems. Apache, php, cron and other systems use it as well.
