Yes, i (also?) suggested compiling from source, because no matter
which nginx-* packages you make, you won't please everyone. Unless, of
course, you make a package for each module, but i assume that would
require nginx to load them at runtime. I still prefer compiling.

I'll check out backports, thanks.
