I tried pretty much all of the approaches outlined above without success 
on nginx 0.6.37 (posting this in June 2009. Get the version # using: 
nginx -v)
The one approach I found did work was putting the following in the 
server section of my config files:

error_page 503 @503;
location @503 {
  rewrite  ^(.*)$  /system/maintenance.html break;

if (-f $document_root/system/maintenance.html) {
  return 503;

I found it in the internet archive, posted by Lee Jensen and credited to
