Well in the context of a mod_perl enabled apache, you must recompile 
mod_perl and then load the new one in your httpd.conf config.

IF your talking about apache without mod_perl, its the wrong 
mailinglist; but, you can just change the #!/usr/bin/perl line
at the top of the scripts to be the absolute path to the perl you want.
