Actually *all* arguments to the _fastcgi script are broken in 5.89000-TRIAL 
(incl. -l/--listen, -n/--nproc, -d/--detach, -e/--keeperr, and -M/--manager). 
If you need to launch with the _fastcgi script, you will need to wait for the 
next trial release, or build from svn (Catalyst-Runtime/5.80/branches/psgi) or 
at least get Catalyst::Script::FastCGI from there.

You can still test with _server.pl though, or with your own choice of Plack 
server and .psgi file, or test apps with Catalyst::Test and TWMC.

If you maintain any modules that interface with Catalyst, give them a quick 
check to make sure that they don't assume the existence of 
Catalyst::Engine::CGI -- if they do, they will break with the removal of 
Catalyst::Engine::* !
