varnishncsa & VirtualHost

I was previously running a SVN build of Varnish 2.1.4 which included 
fixes for timeouts with Content-Length. At the time there was no 2.1.5 
debian package. I also applied the "-v virtualhost patch" [ticket 485] 
to varnishncsa to support virtualhost logging (as this is a 
multi-website webserver).

Yesterday we updated to Debian Squeeze and I figured it a good time to 
switch back to official debs. We are now running 
varnish 2.1.5 but to my dismay I cannot get VirtualHost logging in 
varnishncsa? Apparently the logformat  (-F) switch did not make it into 
this release?? This was a bad presumption.

Are there any current solutions for getting virtualhost logging to work? 
Are there any unofficial .debs supporting the -F or -v options for 

Many thanks,
