In your test environment, If you have compiled it, do an install instead copy.

My recomendation, if you are using some kind of packaging, patch the
src.rpm. deb o whatever and install it in your test environment, do
your tests and copy varnishncsa to production, of course the two
environments must be identical.

If you aren't sure, wait for 3.0.2 :)
