No, FastCgiServer declarations are global, and the namespace for the "mount
points" is global. Apache lets you place the config lines inside of a vhost,
but that doesn't actually do anything different than if you'd placed them
outside of a vhost.
The good thing is that now that you know this, you probably don't have to do
anything besides remove one of the conflicting lines. I find that the best
organization is to have three different stanzas in three included files (in
the sites-available/ directory of a debian-based config in my case, but you
can adjust to taste): a file called "sitename-run-fcgi" only contains the
FastCgiServer, FastCgiOptions, or any other config relevant to making the
FastCGI available; a file called "sitename" contains the nonsecure vhost, and
a file called "sitename-secure" contains the SSL vhost. Both of the latter
files use the FastCGI mountpoint set up by the first file.
