Nginx dynamic module install

In my make.conf:
.if !empty(.CURDIR:M/usr/ports/www/nginx*)
CONFIGURE_ARGS=--add-module=/usr/src/nginx/ngx_log_if --add-dynamic-module=/usr/src/nginx/nginx-module-vts

Dynamic module does compile but `make install` does not copy it to /usr/local/libexec/nginx/.
How to make nginx install it with other modules, so I could update port using portmaster and not building it first and then copying file manually?

What options exactly? Dynamic modules are enabled. I'm adding a 3rd-party module that is not in this port.
What if I need a modified version? Even with selected option the port's version of a module is being installed.
The question was how to auto install custom dynamic module with a port, module's contents are irrelevant.
