This unit is a translation of a library. Most likely, that was exactly the
value specified in the original header files.
I would not recommend using this unit.
It is most likely outdated, and I would not even know what library it supports.
I will ask on the core group what to do, I think it is better to remove it.
Free Pascal supports fastcgi natively using the custfcgi or fpfcgi units.
