Save to /etc/varnish/newrelic.h and add the following to your vcl_recv declaration in default.vcl.

C{
#include </etc/varnish/newrelic.h>
}C

This code does not seem to work anymore. Here's what varnish says :

@trivollan I am not currently running Varnish or New Relic in production, but I'm sure the folks on the mailing list or IRC (#varnish on irc.linpro.no) can point out what's changed since I wrote this.

If you are using Varnish 3.0 you need to place the C includes outside of the VCL blocks.
