This is impossible. Think about what nginx does - It matches filenames 
to a mask and passes the request using CGI to the port defined on a match.

There is no reason why Nginx should know the CGI server is php (It is 
only convention that php files end in .php) and no reason why it should 
be php
either - it might be Ruby, Python, Erlang, or anything else you might 
use.  Further there is no way it can determine which  php.ini file it 
would have to read even if it could know it was a php configuration it 
had to find.
