make fails on nginx-0.8.49

I am attempting to compile nginx-0.8.49 with the upstream fair module. The configure script seems to run ok with the following options:


#./configure --add-module=../upfair

but when I run make it fails with this error:


objs/src/os/unix/ngx_process.o: In function `ngx_process_get_status':
/mnt/store/src/nginx/SOURCES/nginx-0.8.49/src/os/unix/ngx_process.c:490: warning: `sys_errlist' is deprecated; use `strerror' or `strerror_r' instead
/mnt/store/src/nginx/SOURCES/nginx-0.8.49/src/os/unix/ngx_process.c:490: warning: `sys_nerr' is deprecated; use `strerror' or `strerror_r' instead
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/store/src/nginx/SOURCES/nginx-0.8.49'

I believe the above `sys_nerr' is deprecated; /en/docs/sys_errlist.html is actually normal. This is according to what I've found on the web and according to what I've heard in #nginx on freenode.

Given this information, what I _really_ think is the problem may be the fact that make install produces this error:


root@LCENT01:/mnt/store/src/nginx/SOURCES/nginx-0.8.49]#make install
make -f objs/Makefile install

test -d '/usr/local/nginx/logs' ||                mkdir -p '/usr/local/nginx/logs'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/store/src/nginx/SOURCES/nginx-0.8.49'

And if I try to start nginx this is what I get:


[root@LCENT01:/home/bluethundr]#service nginx start
Starting nginx:                                          [FAILED]

I am on CentOS 55 x86_64


[root@LCENT01:/home/bluethundr]#uname -a
Linux LCENT01 2.6.18-194.11.3.el5xen #1 SMP Mon Aug 30 17:42:28 EDT 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@LCENT01:/home/bluethundr]#cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 5.5 (Final)

I would greatly appreciate any advice and effort that could help me get this going. Thanks in advance!!

Are you sure the install failed? I don't see any errors, just warnings...
