The way you word this seems to me ambiguous.  Are you needing assistance
in how to do the two options I mentioned?

To have EmbPerl process it instead of EmbPerlObject, you'd basically
define a different file extension in apache, and configure it to use
EmbPerl for that extension.

To have an empty base.epo, you'd simply copy either /dev/null or nul
(depending on your OS) to base.epo into a subdirectory specifically for
pages without templates.
