Is there any particular reason we aren't just using #!perl and crossing
our fingers that it's in the path?  I guess we're intentionally making it
hard to run the standard CGIs... but I think the user having to move them
out of cgi-examples is chore enough.  If they do that, they want them and
presumably understand the risks and will probably expect them to just
work, as I did.  Oops.  =-)

In the process of debugging the easy problems as if they were hard (:-), I
discovered that mod_cgi.c doesn't compile in DEBUG_CGI mode because of
some undeclared variables (looks like that particular line got moved to a
new function where the variables no longer exist).  I'll fix that later...
