Logging directory is always /var/log on startup

Configuration is:
error_log /test/dir/error.log;
access_log /test/dir/access.log;

When starting nginx, it always tries to write to /var/log/nginx/error.log first (as compiled), before using the value configured in the configuration file.

nginx: [alert] could not open error log file: open() "/var/log/nginx/error.log" failed (2: No such file or directory)

Please make it read the configuration file first and then (try to) log anything.
