Can you put a symbolic link in http://nginx.org/download/ that would
point to the latest stable release of nginx and that would be updated
with each release?
Something like: http://nginx.org/download/nginx-current.tar.gz?
It would help with automating the process of compiling the latest nginx.
Also, there is a lot of documentation on the web that explains how to
get and compile nginx from sources and all these docs become obsolete
over time because they point to the nginx that was available during
the time of writing the doc.
