I suppose this is a bug. At least, the bug is that $NGX_CONF_PATH still 
defaults to $NGX_CONF_PREFIX/conf/nginx.conf, while nginx.conf is 
installed into $NGX_CONF_PREFIX (and other inconsistencies like this, 
including ones in example configuration file you mentioned).

Sure Igor will resolve this somehow in 0.6.7.
