1. www/nginx (as well as www/nginx-devel) doesn't install passenger
2. www/nginx (as well as www/nginx-devel) compiles with support for
   passenger, because no other way (i.e. binary modules support) to
   work with third-party modules.

You should install www/rubygem-passenger (for passenger) and
web-server (www/nginx) for passenger support.

Correct, patch for upgrade from 2.2.9 to 2.2.11 is trivial.
