Work on the FastCGI support was a prototype investigation.  It is not currently
supported or being worked on. I hope to be able to return to it some day and
make a more comprehensive implementation that does not involve duplicating
all of mapserv.c but it will be a substantial effort.

In the meantime, you can likely "hand integrate" some of the changes from
the newer mapserv.c into mapserv_fcgi.c or try applying fast cgi support to
mapserv.c yourself - though this might not be a job for the faint of heart.
