The "--modules-path" configure option defines a directory where
dynamic modules will be installed by "make install" and only used
during installation.

The "load_module" configuration directive, if used with relative
paths, resolves such paths from "--prefix", much like most of the
configuration directives. Note the example in the documentation
(http://nginx.org/r/load_module):

load_module modules/ngx_mail_module.so;

This example assumes the default "--modules-path", so modules are
installed into the "modules" directory under prefix.
