Well, on FreeBSD, the nginx package contains just one binary: /usr/local/sbin/nginx and no libraries.

Technically, I’m pretty sure I could unpack that binary from the package and place it just about anywhere in the filesystem (and subsequently run it from there).

Of course, I never got the chance to try out nginx-plus - but I assume it’s not much different.

Though I have trouble understanding the reason behind such a request…
