The FastCGI list isn't really the right place to get help with how to
configure lighttpd's FastCGI module.

That said, it does indeed look like you're not specifying a pathname
as noted in the Lighttpd mod_fastcgi docs I linked to last time.
Here's the line you seem to have missed:
# "bin-path": path to the local FastCGI binary which should be started if
no local FastCGI is running

So either a) you specify bin-path, and lighttpd will start that
for you, or b) you start the FastCGI server outside of lighttpd and set it
to listen on the port you have configured lighttpd to talk over.
