If you need throw ways /subdir/subdir/, you can try the followning:

location ~ /(testgalleries|galleries|poll|news|photos)(/|$) {
      root /usr/local/apache/htdocs;

      set  $script_name  $uri;
      set  $path_info    "";

      if ($uri ~ ^/(?:.+/)?(testgalleries|galleries|poll|news|photos)(/.*)) {
            set  $script_name  /$1;
            set  $path_info    $2;
            fastcgi_pass       ...
