nginx adds prefix to every path which doesn't start with '/' 
during configuration parsing (i.e. before variables are evaluated, 
which happens only during request processing).

If you are planning to use absolute paths constructed with 
variables in directives which take paths and have non-null prefix 
you should indicate absolute path by placing leading '/', e.g.

    root /$full_path;

Not sure this is documented somewhere though.
