Yes, it does. Varnish requires that you specify *either* a VCL script
*or* a backend on the command line. What you did wrong was that you
specified an empty VCL script. The default VCL script is a copy of the
build-in default script that Varnish uses if you don't specify one, and
is provided for documentation purposes only; you should never use it.
(and yes, the varnishd rc script in the FreeBSD port is incorrect in
this respect; patches are welcome)
