I'm sorry that I don't really have any information why the test is  
failing, but this is our first foray into using varnish, so I haven't  
had time yet to look at any source outside of the RPM spec file.  If I  
take the spec file in the 2.0.5 release and update to use that version  
of the source, I receive the following error. (the spec still points  
to 2.0.4).

1 of 143 tests failed

I'm including the log of my compile in hopes it will help you debug.   
The failing test seems to be 00006, and this is being compiled in a  
VMware Fusion VM running Redhat ES 5.2 with some updates but nothing  
major that I recall.

Thanks for all your hard work on varnish.  It's a very interesting  
project and I'm hopeful we'll end up using it on our production site  
after we spend a bit more time with it.
