To use fcgi on Windows, you have to take next steps to install:
Download an install Fastcgi-development-kit from www.fastcgi.com,
i’ve installed it in C:/fcgi directory.(Last version is
Download last version of mod_fcgid.so and fcgi.so module from
“http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi” and put it on apache/modules
directory. (Last version is mod_fcgid-2.3.5-win32-x86.zip).
install the fcgi gem from www.rubyforge.org or www.rubygems.org with
gem install procedure (You need the --with-opt-dir directive to fcgi
installation directory for the procedure work.)
I don’t know if Mingw install procedure is different. I have installed
Mingw (and Msys also) and also Cygwin, but i don’t use them too much,
because i always work better with Windows.
I use WSDK for Windows 7 and Netframework 3.5 to compile sources, but i
think in Windows is better to download binaries from some
web-site.Generally source-compilation ends with a lot of errors.Is
difficult not to miss any header file and i think the effort dont’s
whorty (I’ve really tried it so hard, but at last Â¡i give up!, Â¡dammned

Finally i’ve could install fcgi and ruby-fcgi on Windows-Xp.
The command to do it was:
gem install fcgi – --with-opt-dir=c:\fcgi --remote
gem install ruby-fcgi – --with-opt-dir=c:\fcgi --remote
Where c:\fcgi is the Fastcgi-development-kit installation directory.
Wow for some reason I’m not able to even build the fcgi library using
mingw. Where did you get those binaries? Did you compile them youself?
It appears that fcgi on windows is pretty rare 
You might get some traction with
gem install ruby-fcgi – --with-opt-dir=/fcgi --remote
gem install ruby-fcgi – --with-opt-dir=c:/fcgi --remote
if you’re using mingw.
