I should write a complete blog post about modifying a debian/ubuntu package to add modules. I do the work in a virtualbox virtual machine so I don't clutter up my computers with all the dev packages. Basically this:

make a working directory and cd to it
apt-get source nginx (this will get the 1.0.0 from ppa:nginx/stable if you have it in your apt sources)
apt-get build-dep nginx
cd to the nginx-[version] directory
download and untar the new modules to the module directory (debian prefers that you make a patch and put it in debian/patches, but you can just put them in place manually for now)
modify debian/rules and add the appropriate line to the configure command (you can mostly copy the line there for the upstream-fair module)
run dch to update the changelog with a new version
run debuild -us -uc

and voila you have a new deb that you can dpkg -i. If you're on Ubuntu and you intend to keep doing it and distributing it to multiple machines, I highly recommend getting a launchpad ppa. There's some extra one time work registering a gpg key with launchpad and on your virtual machine and the debuild command is a little different, and you dput it up to launchpad, but it's still quick, and then you can just apt-get full-upgrade to pull your new version to all your dev/production servers.
