In the RedHat package, a startup script is installed and added to the 
chkconfig system, but it is not started after installation, and it is 
not set up to start automatically at boot time. The user has to do this 
manually, like 'service varnishlog start' and 'chkconfig varnishlog on'.

The post update script restarts varnishlog (and varnishd) if it is running.
