  Hard to say without seeing the code. I do have a library I wrote (in C,
GPLed) that handles CGI requests that has an *extensive* debugging facility
built in you could use (I can even supply sample CGI programs) that I've
used on multiple Unix platforms (IRIX, Linux (Intel and DEC Alpha---actually
found a libc bug on the DEC Alpha with my code), OpenBSD---not sure about
FreeBSD but it should compile fine).

  Conversely if you want, I can take a look at the code and possibly figure
out what's wrong (I do have access to Linux on Intel and DEC Alpha, OpenBSD
and Solaris 8x (and maybe HP-UX 10.20 in a day or two)). That might
actually isolate the problem to FreeBSD (or your code).
