Trying to compile 0.7.19 on OS X Tiger (10.4.9). Compiles fine, nginx -v 
returns ok, but running nginx causes the following error:

[alert] 14674#0: sysctlbyname(kern.ostype) failed (2: No such file or 

I compiled with the following:

./configure --prefix=/opt/local/nginx --sbin-path=/usr/sbin/nginx 

Any ideas why this might be failing?
