I suggest not think about that at all.

This seems really strange. Nowhere in the headers are anything mentioned
about application/x-perl, except very remotely mod_perl. So, where does the
obscure Netscape version get anything about Perl? Could some sort of header
magic happen that we don't see?

I think you need make a request with the particular browser, and intercept
the request and response headers. From this you could determine if there is
something in the response that could be interpreted like that by the
browser, and the request headers could give hints to why those headers are
generated; content negotiation etc.
