Since nginx is a single binary, I suggest you might be able to extract
the binary from the old package and have both on the system in
parallel. This would let you give us the output from 2 versioned runs.
Kind of like

user at austin:~$ nginx-1.1.18 -g "blah"
nginx: [alert] could not open error log file: open()
"/var/log/nginx/error.log" failed (13: Permission denied)
2012/05/15 12:48:49 [emerg] 25887#0: unexpected end of parameter,
expecting ";" in command line
user at austin:~$ nginx-1.1.17 -g "blah"
[... nginx is running fine ]

With some -V invocations in there to show the compile-time settings, too.
