Well I don't know if anyone has tried but I managed to get perl 5.003 to 
work with fastcgi... Heres what I did:

untar/compress'd fcgi-devel-kit.tar.Z and perl5.003.tgz.
cp -r fcgi-devel-kit/perl-5/common/* perl5.003/
cp fcgi-devel-kit/perl-5/perl5.002/Configure perl5.003

Added the following to the top of proto.h:

#ifdef _FCGI_STDIO
#undef printf
Added the following to the bottow of proto.h:

#ifdef _FCGI_STDIO
#define printf FCGI_printf

export FCGIDIR=fcgi-devel-kit
cd perl5.003

make install

Compiled without a hitch...

Maybe this could make it into fcgi-devel-kit so people dont have to do 
this simple little patch.
