I count 67 different modules in /etc/apache2/mods-available. Which means you rarely a new .so. On the other hand, Nginx is much more limited in functionalities out-of-the-box.

How do you handle deployment of your custom nginx on several boxes?

The same way I handle deployment of everything else. The binary is just one file (/usr/sbin/nginx). Distributing config and restarting processes is the same as with apache.

(My recent nginx deployment have 2 machines, so I do it manually, but in the past, I had a homegrown solution that would pull files from version control, and if they changed, asked the binary to restart)
