I'm not sure how fastcgi is implemented in nginx, but
something similar is sure there.

I found fcgi-test.cpp in the archive of cgicc.
Building fcgi-test.cpp brings linker errors, it is also
commented out in the Makefile of cgicc, I guess because of the link errors.

Never mind, I found another, much simpler, solution: use SCGI instead of 
My first tests with mod_scgi in nginx are positive (using a test SCGIserver of

a test answer).
I think cgicc should be usable for SCGI clients too, but haven't tested it yet.
And it's a matter of taste/choice whether one wants to start external clients
