Read this two or three times (as well as the comments in the web.xml
file) before I posted. Did what I thought it was telling me to do and so
far NG.

Did that after trying to be "stubborn" and leave them in "cgi-bin" where
they were located while the website was hosted at the previous
provider's server.  Now I am running in a VPS and have to re-invent things.

Snip.  The CGI script in question (written in Perl) doesn't seem to be
getting executed still. In fact the purpose of the script is to generate
"on the fly" javascript and what is coming back instead is the Perl code
itself instead of the javascript the Perl script should be generating.

I tried setting the value for "executable" first to /usr/bin/perl and
then to just perl and this resulted in tomcat generating an exception
and not being able to start and complaints from my club members that
they couldn't get to the site while all that was going on. (Figures..
when I'm working on the site, they try to access it just then.)

What disturbs me slightly is I did a search for the
servlets-ssi.rename-to-jar or even servlets-ssi.jar file from the top
level in Geronimo and did not find it.  Should I be worried about that
or is that deprecated?
