NGinx as a reverse proxy and http_sub_folder module (and httpsubs)

I am trying to reverse proxy my website and modify the content. To do so, I
compiled nginx with sub_filter --with-http-sub_module as well as httpsubs .
It now accepts the sub_filter directive, but it does not work

Here is my configuration:
server {
    listen       8080;

    access_log  /var/log/nginx/  main;
    error_log  /var/log/nginx/;
    root   /usr/share/nginx/html;
    index  index.html index.htm;

    ## send request back to apache1 ##
    location / {
       sub_filter <title> '<title>test</title>';
       sub_filter_once on;

     proxy_next_upstream error timeout invalid_header http_500 http_502
http_503 http_504;
     proxy_redirect off;
     proxy_buffering off;
     proxy_set_header        Host            $host;
     proxy_set_header        X-Real-IP       $remote_addr;
     proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;


I also tried with the subs_filter directives, none of them work.

Can anyone help me ?
