Umm. My current build doesn't include CGI support, let alone FastCGI.

The PHP build system seems to disable CGI support if you enable any
other Server API method :-(
(/usr/bin/php is the CLI SAPI version)

Looks like I may have to consider some more invasive hacking of the
build-system than I wanted to, or build the whole thing multiple times
to produce the multiple variants.
