In exactly the same way.  That's just the CGI "GET" method, which
FastCGI supports.  the "order_nbr=16" will end up in the QUERY_STRING
environment variable after FCGI_Accept() runs.

ACTION=report.fcg, or however you've set up your web server to
identify FastCGI applications.  In apache, I use 
AddHandler fastcgi-script fcg
in srm.conf to make files ending in .fcg be FastCGI applications.
