nginx doesn't start: nginx.conf relative paths are relative to /usr/local/nginx

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nginx

In the gutsy version of the nginx package (0.5.26) the default nginx.conf file at /etc/nginx/nginx.conf has "include conf/mime.types". Relative include paths are relative to --prefix as specified in ./configure. The package leaves this unspecified so all paths are relative to /usr/local/nginx. This prevents nginx from starting immediately after install.

Changing nginx.conf to refer to /etc/nginx/mime.types fixes the problem and the server starts correctly.

I can confirm this bug.
Even if /etc/nginx/nginx.conf is provided in the ./configure script, the absolute path of the other config files must be provided.
