$document_root variable not working

I'm running nginx 1.2.0 under FreeBSD 9.0.
I configured phpMyAdmin to execute unter
which is working fine, but php scripts outside
/pma I get "File not found."
(e.g. https://server/info.php)

this is my config:

location / {
root /usr/local/www/nginx;
index index.html index.php;

location /pma {
root /usr/local/www;
index index.php;

location ~ \.php$ {
set $php_root $document_root;
if ($request_uri ~* /pma) {
set $php_root /usr/local/www;

fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $php_root$fastcgi_script_name;
include /usr/local/etc/nginx/fastcgi_params

The problem is the config line
set $php_root $document_root;
When I replace it with
set $php_root /usr/local/www/nginx;
everything is okay. I found in the documentation,
that $document_root should contain the value
of "root", but obvious it isn't.

Any ideas whats wrong?
