I've had a similar problem, I've written a CGI in C with 'cgic' library
and it run pretty well on the command line, but don't seem to work
on my Web server (apache 1.3.2 win32).

In fact it seem that's an apache problem... Someone said me to upgrade
to 1.3.6.

By the way for bypassing this problem I simply wrote a batch file to
wrap the C program execution :

@echo off
REM callcgi.bat
REM This script is for calling an executable compiled with gcc (DJGPP)
REM as a cgi program.

I don't know where the problem is, if you have an answer I'll be

Hope that helps,
