Install Nginx source on Ubuntu

I want to get FancyIndex install on my nginx but without removing my original nginx settings. So first follow the instruction here http://wiki.nginx.org/NgxFancyIndex 

Some of additional libraries and files required for compiling nginx
$sudo apt-get install build-essential libpcre3 libpcre3-dev libpcrecpp0 libssl-dev zlib1g-dev

During ./configure adding in 

$./configure --add-module=../ngx-fancyindex --prefix=/etc/nginx --sbin-path=/usr/sbin/nginx --conf-path=/etc/nginx/nginx.conf --error-log-path=/var/log/nginx/error.log --http-log-path=/var/log/nginx/access.log --pid-path=/var/run/nginx.pid --lock-path=/var/run/nginx.lock --http-client-body-temp-path=/var/cache/nginx/client_temp --http-proxy-temp-path=/var/cache/nginx/proxy_temp --http-fastcgi-temp-path=/var/cache/nginx/fastcgi_temp --http-uwsgi-temp-path=/var/cache/nginx/uwsgi_temp --http-scgi-temp-path=/var/cache/nginx/scgi_temp --user=nginx --group=nginx --with-http_ssl_module --with-http_realip_module --with-http_addition_module --with-http_sub_module --with-http_dav_module --with-http_flv_module --with-http_mp4_module --with-http_gunzip_module --with-http_gzip_static_module --with-http_random_index_module --with-http_secure_link_module --with-http_stub_status_module --with-mail --with-mail_ssl_module --with-file-aio --with-ipv6 --with-http_spdy_module

then follow by

$make
$sudo make install

I overcome an issue when running nginx because a folder /var/cache/nginx/client_temp is required for the cache. So created it then shouldn’t have any issue.
