Thanks.  After experimenting and not getting it to work, I finally purged
apache2, apache2-common and lib-apache2-mod-perl2 (those are the Debian
package names), made sure all the config files were deleted, then
re-installed all three and used your config for perl.load.  It worked fine.

Thank you.
