As a first guess is that maybe the server cannot find all the libraries. 
Could you try to run the server on command line first (also as web 
server user) and see if it crashes already there?

With a bit of tweaking I got everything to install and run nicely, but with the Qgis mapserver I'm struggeling at the moment. Through zypper I have installed the packages "FastCGI" and "FastCGI-devel" system-wide and QGis 2.2 compiles and installs nicely from sources.
