That's the module name you've specified during build
("ngx_module_name=$ngx_addon_name"), and hence this is the module
structure nginx tries to find during loading. Since there is no
such structure, module loading fails.

If you are curios where the structure in question is referenced,
check auto/module and auto/make files.
