Are you sure you are using the nginx instance that you build yourself?

By default, nginx will be installed into /usr/local/nginx/. Ensure
you're using this nginx instead of the nginx shipped by your OS
vender. You can use the absolute path of your nginx:

    /usr/local/nginx/sbin/nginx -c /path/to/your/nginx.conf
