I've written a binding to libfcgi.  It's basically a complete mess at
this point, but it works (caveat: only tested on Linux/lighttpd and
will certainly not work in Windows).  I can send it to you if you
want, and I'll probably fix it up and release it eventually.

Regarding other solutions:
I couldn't get the FastCGI proxy from Metcast to work, and it looked
like getting it to work would require learning the details of libfcgi
(which is why I wrote my own, since it was about the same amount of
trouble).  I had roughly the same problem with the one for Gauche,
with the additional bonus that Gauche has an undocumented FFI.  The
only other Scheme/Lisp solution I know of is a native implementation
for CMUCL, which I have not used.
