I haven't figured the WP Super Cache part yet in my config, but this is
what I'm using for now.

  server {
    listen 80;
    server_name blog.example.com;
    access_log  /var/log/nginx/example.com.access.log;
    client_max_body_size 16m;

    location ~ \.php$ {
      fastcgi_index  index.php;
      fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  /www/example.com$fastcgi_script_name;
      include        /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;

    location / {
      root /www/example.com;
      index index.php index.html;

      if (!-e $request_filename) {
	rewrite ^/(blog)/(.+)$ /$1/index.php?q=$2 last;

Adding WP Super Cache should just require two more tests for a file
existing.  The non-compressed case is easier, but I don't know off-hand
how to check the request headers for gzip acceptance.
