Disclaimer: I use nginx, but not with auth.

The application begins with an unchrooted process, in order to read its configuration file. It then starts chrooted operational processes.

If the chrooted processes need to find the specific path /etc/nginx/conf/auth_acs, the path must actually be /var/www/etc/nginx/conf/auth_acs due to the chroot resolution.

You can't use symbolic links back to /etc; the chrooted process has no access to any paths outside /var/www, which it sees as "/" as trondd noted above.
