as the readme from the hg repo indicates, you first have to build the
boring lib. (build/ssl build/crypto)

  $ ./auto/configure [..]
--with-ld-opt="-L../boringssl/build/ssl -L../boringssl/build/crypto"
checking for --with-ld-opt="-L../boringssl/build/ssl
-L../boringssl/build/crypto" ... found
nginx-quic/objs$ ./nginx -V
nginx version: nginx/1.19.1
built with OpenSSL 1.1.0 (compatible; BoringSSL) (running with BoringSSL)
TLS SNI support enabled
configure arguments: --with-debug --with-http_v3_module
--with-ld-opt='-L../boringssl/build/ssl -L../boringssl/build/crypto'

I request you to please give me some guidance and suggestions on  how to build Nginx with HTTP/3 , i followed both official sources but i failed. Unless i have a Nginx web server with HTTP/3 enabled I cannot move further with my Thesis.
