Chunked Transfer

Asking, because the documentation looks like it's a little outdated on 

Is Chunked Transfer still not enabled OOTB?  This would seem like almost 
a mandatory feature of HTTP 1.1 to implement, and the only reference I 
could find is to separate source code/module/patch that I would have to 
download and recompile all of nginx for?

Has it been implemented or added to the default, pre-compiled packages 
and I just can't see it in the nginx -V output?

I need the ability to upload large content, and this would appear to be 
the proper way to do that.

I'm using CentOS 6.x if anyone knows of an up-to-date version of the 
nginx binaries that includes what is or was "ngx_chunkin".
