This option enables dynamic modules compatibility, that is, it
ensures that appropriate fields in structures are present (or
appropriately-sized placeholders are added).
As a result, it is now possible to compile compatible dynamic
modules using a minimal set of configure arguments as long as main
nginx binary is compiled using --with-compat. Just
./configure --with-compat --add-dynamic-module=/path/to/module
should be enough to compile a binary compatible module.
Additionally, this option enables binary compatibility of dynamic
modules with our commercial product, NGINX Plus, and thus allows
one to compile and load custom modules into NGINX Plus.
Corresponding version of NGINX Plus is yet to be released though.
