Last time, Mark Brown uttered the following other thing:

I added the following lines to get FastCGI working on my development
server: (to srm.conf)

FCGIScriptAlias /fcgi-bin/ /local/etc/httpd/fcgi-devel-kit/examples/
AppClass /local/etc/httpd/fcgi-devel-kit/examples/tiny-fcgi -listen-queue-depth 10 -processes 2
AppClass /local/etc/httpd/fcgi-devel-kit/examples/tiny-fcgi2 -listen-queue-depth 10 -processes 2

For the release, I added the following to the srm.conf-dist file:
# OpenMarket's FCGI Support Options (
# FCGIScritpAlias: Same as ScriptAlias, except for FCGI scripts
# Format: FCGIScriptAlias fakename realname
FCGIScriptAlias /fcgi-bin/ /usr/local/etc/httpd/fcgi-devel-kit/examples/
# Define the AppClasses. These get hit when requests come in for
# /fcgi-bin/tiny-fcgi.fcgi or /fcgi-bin/tiny-fcgi2.fcgi
AppClass /usr/local/etc/httpd/fcgi-devel-kit/examples/tiny-fcgi -listen-queue-depth 10 -processes 2
AppClass /usr/local/etc/httpd/fcgi-devel-kit/examples/tiny-fcgi2 -listen-queue-depth 10 -processes 2
