multiple nginx

Is is alright to have two installations of nginx on the same machine?
I have a running instance of nginx with php installed from distribution package manager.
Instead of writing another config, I would like to compile and install nginx from source code and run as second instance.
The second instance is to optimize for load balancing, reverse proxy, cache and modsecurity.

My concerns is would this break the system on debian squeeze?

Thanks for answering.
