I'm still working on getting the Perl FCGI module to work on UnixWare. 
By putting some debugging code into Apache I discovered the buffer that 
is passed from the fascgi script to Apache contains "dynamic linker: 
/usr/bin/perl: symbol not found: _sfdisc"

If its of any use, I've grepped /usr/bin/perl and _sfdisc is in it, 
I've grepped and _sfdisc is in it, but it is not in

I also have fastcgi working under Linux along with converting our main 
Perl cgi script to fastcgi, and it works great.

Additionally, when I compile the FCGI module I get type mismatches for 
FCGI.xs lines 63 & 64 - these I'm able to fix by chnging some 
definitions from int to size_t. I also get type mismatches in os_unix.c 
on lines 1009 & 1119 which I am also able to clear up by changing int's 
to size_t. There are also 2 other warnings fo FCGI.xs, lines 295 & 305, 
end-of-loop code not reached, these I have not been able to remedy.

Are there any suggestions as to how to clear up the problem of the 
undefined symbol?
