httpd (+ relayd ?) URL redirection, anyone?

Sorry to bother the list with this, but still stumped after two days.

Trying to switch from nginx to httpd, but there's just one thing left:

Having the webserver pass some URLs to another port:

# working nginx config:
http {
server {
listen 80;
# serving static here
root /var/www/htdocs/test;
# but this URL is sent to Ruby rack server
location = /hello {
proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:3000;
}
}
}

I'm assuming I need relayd to do this, but still stumped after two days of
reading and experimenting with man 5 relayd.conf.

Found this answer from Reyk from two years ago:
https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-misc&m=140508090726719&w=2
... but maybe the syntax has changed since then, since relayd gives a syntax
error for that example, and any variation of it I've tried.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

from http.conf(5) there is no way to redirect to a http server with
httpd.
It seems to only supports fastcgi with a socket.
