managed to figure things out, i will post it here for anyone who might end up facing the same newbie issue:

cd /opt/apt-get source varnish;cd varnish-3.0.5. ./configure --prefix=/usrmake

#  getting   varnish module secdown 
cd /opt/wget master.zipcd libvmod-secdown. VARNISHSRC=/opt/varnish-3.0.5/makemake install# remember where it saved its libraries, right now it got saved under : /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/varnish/vmods
cd /opt/varnish-3.0.5make checkmake install
# import it in varnish config, and use it as you may

I have a new requirement which is to setup varnish with libvmod-secdown
After a lot of googling, i have a couple of questions that i got stuck on.
my questions are fairly simple and obviously newbie oriented as i come from windows/microsoft world.
If i wanted to use libvmod-secdown with my varnish installation, should i compile from source and include it somewhere ?
i tried using import secdown, but it's complaining that file doesn't exist
when i downloaded the secdown repo from github and used "" no .so file was generated 
advice ? 
once again, i hope all you experts don't get annoyed from my newbie sort of questions.
