Just from the name and arguments of the script, I'd guess that the 
script itself has something to do with authentication/authorisation, and 
that it may well be /it/ which returns the 403 error.
Since the script is perl, to handle these requests it may very well be 
using the (perl library) module, and this module (and perl) may 
be another version on your new server.  This different version in turn 
may very well be interpreting GET and POST arguments differently from 
the previous one.
In a POST, arguments are sent in the /body/ of the HTTP request, not 
only in the URL.  That's why you do not see some arguments in the access 

If you care to send me the script or post it somewhere for a look, I 
could probably tell you more.
