Hi igor,

in order to compile the patch version, I had to modify the patch
because it tried to patch auto/configure. The configure is in the root
directory, not in auto. Or I misunderstood something ?

Then I didn't understand how the -p option works. I made the following test:
/usr/local/nginx/sbin/nginx -p /root/test/nginx

but all file are relative to the default prefix (/usr/local/nginx)
except the root directive which is relative to /root/test/nginx in my

Thx for the answers

>    *) Feature: now the start up errors and warnings are outputted to an
>       error_log and stderr.
>    *) Feature: the --prefix=. configure parameter forces nginx to use
>       current directory as prefix.
>    *) Feature: the -p switch.
>    *) Feature: the -s switch on Unix platforms.
>    *) Feature: the -? and -h switches.
>    *) Feature: now switches may be set in condensed form.
