you do NOT need necessarily world-readable cgi-bin

that seems to be very Mandrake-specific; it looks like your changes have not 
been adapted. Is there an Include directive for http-perl.conf? Have you made 
the changes there, too?
Anyway, if you're on the learning road targeting apache + mysql I'd suggest 
you to download an apache 1.3.26 tarball,
extract in /usr/local/ and compile it --with-port=82 so you can fire it up 
immediately. If you have a bit more understanding stop the Mandrake 
perl-httpd, replace port 82 with 80 in your /usr/local conf, replace the 
binary httpd in /usr/sbin (make a copy to httpd.orig), and replace the 
httpd.conf in /etc/httpd/conf (make a copy). So on system startup your server 
is called by the init scripts.
That way everything should work as you expected :-
