[Catalyst] fastcgi script returns 404

Hello all,

I have a catalyst installation that I'm bringing up from scratch in a new
environment.  I've decided to go with lighttpd / fastcgi as the web server.
When running the server script (the project is named map, so it's the
map_server.pl script), pages seem to come up just fine.  However, when I
start lighttpd, and run the map_fastcgi.pl script with the following command

./script/map_fastcgi.pl --listen --nproc 5 --keeperr 2

It seems that only the index page of the site is served properly - any other
link that I click on just results in a 404.  So it seems that I am doing
something wrong with fastcgi.  Can anyone recommend what I need to do

For informational purposes - I run lighttpd with the following configuration

server.document-root =3D "/home/mapper/artplot/root/"
server.modules +=3D ( "mod_fastcgi" )
server.port =3D 80

server.username =3D "mapper"
server.groupname =3D "mapper"

mimetype.assign =3D (
  ".htm" =3D> "text/html",
  ".html" =3D> "text/html",
  ".txt" =3D> "text/plain",
  ".jpg" =3D> "image/jpeg",
  ".png" =3D> "image/png"

static-file.exclude-extensions =3D ( ".pm", ".pl", ".conf" )

fastcgi.server =3D ("" =3D>
        "host" =3D> "",
        "port" =3D> 9000,
