To not break upgrades, please use a version naming convention that won't 
break Red Hat's upgrade algorithm.

A build of a pre-1.1.3 svn checkout should be named something like

... or in specfile format:

Version: 1.1.3
Release: 0.1.20080304svn

This makes it possible to upgrade to a newer svn checkout, or an 
upstream release varnish-1.1.3-1.

A patched build of 1.1.2 should be named something like

... or in specfile format:

Version: 1.1.2
Release: 5.1.mypatchfixesfoo

In this way, it's possible to upgrade from your built version to a new 
released version of 1.1.3 It's also visible that your patched version is 
based on a newer build than a current 1.1.2-5 and makes an upgrade to a 
newer upstream 1.1.2-6 from the varnish team possible. You may even add 
another patch, and call varnish-1.1.2-5.2.evenmorepatchedversionfoo and 
so on to ensure easy package upgrading.

btw, I didn't think you needed the preprocessor for gcc-c++ to make 
varnish build. Is this really so?
