Where are you getting "perl-script" as a  handler name? This is not a
built-in handler...

Try using:

	AddHandler cgi-script .pl
This is the standard CGI built-in handler which will execute your perl
program as a CGI. If you get an Internal Server Error, this will be good
news - your script is executing! Then check the CGI header (see the CGI
tutorial in the docs for further details...)
