No.

Form of proxy_pass with uri component (proxy_pass http://mongrel/)
changes matched location prefix to this uri component. So, for

location /blah/ {
proxy_pass http://backend/boom/;
}

and request "/blah/something" your backend will see
"/boom/something".

Without uri component (proxy_pass http://mongrel) uri will be
transfered to backend as is, i.e. for

location /blah/ {
proxy_pass http://backend;
}

and request "/blah/something" your backend will see
"/blah/something".

For location / as you may see from the above form doesn't matter,
and

proxy_pass http://mongrel;
proxy_pass http://mongrel/;

are equivalent (while the second one will eat a bit more CPU).
