This isn't quite correct - the aforementioned link is for a C
CGI-programming library, however this (like the Perl CGI module) merely
provides ways to interact with form data and the like.  It certainly is not
*required* for writing a CGI program in C.

The OP's code is really just a C implementation of the canonical CGI - HTTP
headers & a "Hello World" response - and should be working fine, as long as
it is being invoked in accordance with Apache's configuration.
