Looks like you're trying to run this out of the source directory not
the installed directory.  I don't think it makes much sense trying to
run the CGI's via the driver outside a web server environment -- there
are all sorts of environment things missing.  Much better to write a
script to do what you want.  See my recently posted list_lists for an
example (or anything inside bin/).
