In that case, can anyone figure out how to rewrite this config without
a redirect so that munin can be accessed with host:port?  I worked on
it for quite a bit but couldn't come up with anything functional.

location = / {
    return 301 https://$host:$server_port/munin/;

location /munin {
    fastcgi_split_path_info ^(/munin)(.*);
    fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_path_info;
    fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/munin/fcgi-html.sock-1;
    include fastcgi_params;
