Nginx 0.6.31 ebuild for use with Gentoo and derivate distributions is
now available at the "connectical-contrib" overlay [1], with the
following improvements over the official Gentoo packaging:

 - USE=python enables building Manlio's WSGI module [2].
 - USE=scgi enables building Manlio's SCGI module (use with care!)
 - USE=addition enables building the bundled "addition" module
 - USE=perftools enables building the bundled Google perftools module
 - USE=gzip-static enables building the bundled precompression module

The following patched are applied when building:

 - Escaping of non-printable characters in log files [4].
 - Use "X-Forwarded-Host" instead of "Host" when proxying requests [5]
 - Fix stack overflow because of recursive calls [6]

Comments are welcome. Enjoy!

Mozilla now runs on OpenBSD, but this has been reported as a bug
and should be fixed by next version.
