And i thought Debian Sid was slow keeping up to date with nginx
(latest is 0.7.61 [1]).

The source comes with a configure script, it's (almost) as simple as
running it. Search the nginx wiki for the modules you want to
add/remove and pertinent configuration/installation and you should do
fine. If you run into trouble the Ubuntu forums are a vast source of

If it's in the Ubuntu repos, i recommend using "checkinstall" ([2]?)
instead of "make install", that way you'll end up with a .deb to
install, which makes things much more clean.
